In addition, final year undergraduate incoming Erasmus+ students may also choose to conduct all or part of their thesis project at the University of Aegean. Any student seeking to undertake part or the whole of a thesis project at the University of Aegean needs to look for and get in touch with potential supervisor(s) at the host Institution and make the necessary arrangements well in advance. Should a student choose to conduct only part of his/her thesis project, then he/she may need to select an additional number of courses offered in English in order to complete the required number of ECTS credits.

Furthermore, you are advised to visit the website of the Department in which you intend to study in order to have access to the complete list of Academic Curricula. Intensive Greek Courses are also organized for foreign students every semester. For more information, please contact Erasmus+ Office @
