Important for your Learning Agreement:

You must check and fill in the learning agreement correctly regarding course codes and ECTS. Please do not send us all pages of Erasmus+ Learning Agreement, only the "Before the Mobility" part is necessary before your arrival. Also, pay attention to how you fill in the names of the responsible people and the contact person on the Learning Agreement.

The contact person (pg1) is the responsible person, in the International Relations Office, for all administrative matters concerning the Erasmus+ programme. The Departmental Coordinator (pg2) is the responsible professor for all academic Erasmus+ matters in each Department and the person in charge to sign your Learning Agreement. Please, keep in mind that the Departmental Coordinator is different for each Department.

Each course is listed with its corresponding ECTS credits. The required workload for one semester is 30 ECTS. Prior to course selection, students should consult with their Departmental Coordinator to ensure the academic recognition of their selected courses. Students should complete their Learning Agreement before their arrival in the University of Thessaly.

If you plan to carry out a project or thesis, you need to get in contact with the Professor that will supervise your work in the corresponding Department in the University of Thessaly. In any case, a Learning Agreement is also necessary.


Health Insurance:

If you are an EU-student, do not forget to bring your European Health Insurance Card, issued by your home health insurance organisation/body!  With the European Health Insurance Card  you can go to any doctor or hospital directly. 

If you are a non-EU-student, you need to get a private health insurance plan which will also be valid in Greece. To ensure that the health insurance premium meets the Greek national standards, it is recommended that students purchase the same as an in-country medical insurance plan.
