ATHENS for MSc & BSc>120ECTS: study abroad one week (application deadline Friday!)

26 januari 2017

Dear students,

Twice a year you have the opportunity to follow a one-week intensive course, organised by several European Universities. This programme is called the ATHENS programme (Advanced Technology Higher Education Network, Socrates). Each course also boasts its own social programme. You can earn 2 ECTS.

The next ATHENS session is held from 11-18 March, 2017 and the appliciation deadline is 25th of January 12:00 (noon on Friday). Please note: for you application you need the signature of the International Office of 3mE. You can come by on: Tuesday 12:30-13:30, Thursday 12:30-13:30 or Friday morning. 

Course programme 

The courses allow you either to deepen your knowledge within your area of studies or to discover a new discipline. The courses are held in English and/or French. Each course includes about 30 hours of scientific course work. Another 10-15 hours go towards ‘European Dimension’ activities; you will not only discover the university and the city, you will also meet other international students and have a great time.

Can I participate? 

The courses are open to Master and Bachelor students who have completed all first year courses and have obtained a minimum of 120 ECTS. Because places are limited, exchange and free mover students are excluded from participation.

Costs & Compensation

The course is free of charge. However, a small fee is charged for the social programme. Travel, living and accommodation costs are at your own expense. If you attend and successfully finish your course and social programme you will receive the ATHENS compensation of €100,- as a contribution to the travel abroad, upon your return.
