ONLY for Erasmus+ Οutgoing students of University of Thessaly (European Master in Sport and Exercise Psychology)
The duration of an Erasmus+ study mobility ranges between 6 and 12 months. During the period of study, lectures have to be followed at the partner Universities. The mobility is recognised as part of the final degree issued by the University of Thessaly.
In order to apply for an Erasmus+ mobility, you need to complete the application form for studies or traineeship. The applications along with the required documents can be submitted from January 14 to Friday February 14, and concern all mobilities of the upcoming academic year.
The Department, based on certain eligibility criteria, make the selection of the applicants and then the results are announced, on the website of the International Relations Office, according to the student’s registration number at their department.
Once you are selected by the Erasmus Academic Coordinator of your Department, the International Office nominates you to the partner Universities and an acceptance letter is issued once the host Universities confirm the nominations.
Each student is informed about the requirments of the Host University by its website or the academic coordinator. The student must remain aware of this procedure, as well as of the entry and exit procedures from the host country. Then the student continues with the completing and sending of the necessary supporting documents to the Host University. Each student is responsible to remain informed and to meet the deadlines set by the Host University, as well as to ensure the correct completion and submission of the necessary supporting documents to the Host University, so special attention must be paid to instructions given by each Host University. The process of completing the procedure regarding their enrollment at the host University and their stay abroad is exclusively the responsibility of the student. The International Relations Office of the University of Thessaly helps to supplement and sign the forms needed.

TRAINEESHIP: Information about Scolarship
Accommodation arrangements need to be made directly by the students. Some Universities offer University accommodation, alternatively you might prefer to share a private accommodation with friends or fellow Erasmus+ students. This is entirely up to you.
We strongly recommend that you familiarise yourself with rules and regulations of the accommodation being rented prior to entering into a long term lease. It is also important to ask for a contract and a receipt for any deposits paid.
During the mobility
In case of any change in the learning agreement (courses, duration, etc.) during the mobility, the student has to complete tables A2 and B2 in the Learning Agreement, always in contact with the Academic Coordinators of both Institutions, while also informing the International Erasmus Office. These changes must be signed and sent to the International Erasmus Office one month after your mobilty start.

The original Transcript of Records must be submitted to the International Relations Office.

B. EVALUATION REPORT
Completion and submission of the on-line Evaluation Report sent to the student at the end of the agreed Erasmus+ study/traineeship period, to the e-mail address stated in the Grant Agreement.
The student is again required to complete and submit electronically the online language assessment test (OLS). Students who have a C2 score on the first test are excluded from the procedure.
The Erasmus+ Study Program provides and ensures full recognition of the study period by the University of Thessaly. This process is ensured by the fact that the participation of any Department of the University of Thessaly in the Program implies its commitment to the automatic recognition of studies carried out by students abroad, as they are stated before their departure in the Learning Agreement, and as they are modified in the form of During the mobility. A course is not recognized only in case it is not included in the Learning Agreement and of course in case it is not completed successfully in accordance with the procedures of evaluation.
The number of ECTS and the study period are recognized by the Department to which each student belongs based on the Transcript of Records that will be presented to the Academic Coordinator of the Department.
