ATHENS - Autumn 2017 Session

We invite students to participate in the nearest session of the ATHENS programme, which will take place from November 11 till November 18, 2017. 

Registration lasts only until October 1st, 2017

Created in 1997, the ATHENS Network is composed of 15 European technological universities or institutions from the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Turkey.

The principle goal of the Network is to facilitate the exchange of students among the major European technological universities.

One of the Network's first and most unique actions concerns the organisation of an intensive course programme given at each member institution during one of two defined periods ("Sessions") of the academic year (November and March). This training activity is called ATHENS Programme.

Each Session includes both 30 hours of scientific courses work as well as 10-15 hours of European Dimension Activities. At the termination of an ATHENS Session, the Home Institution officially recognises the work carried out, according to the results obtained on an examination organised by the Host Institution and evaluated according to its proper system of grading. Each complete Session is generally worth 2 to 3 ECTS credits. The number of credits given depends on the home University.

The ATHENS week permits participants from different institutions to take short courses of a high scientific level and to mix with students of different nationalities and backgrounds. About 60 courses are offered at each ATHENS Session and cover a wide range of thematic, from engineering to social sciences. The objective is to give students a brief immersion in another European education system.
