The official language of instruction is Greek. Nevertheless, all courses can be potentially offered in English, since professors usually propose incoming students bibliography in English, give them projects and have them take exams in English.
We make sure prior to the arrival of an incoming student, that there is such a possibility for every single course of the “Before the mobility” section of the “Learning Agreement”. We propose changes, prior to the student’s arrival, if needed.
All projects at all levels are done in English.
Incoming students must be fluent in English. The level of knowledge required is that of “First Certificate of English Language”, (Cambridge or Michigan). Certifications from the Language Centers of partner universities are accepted.
Incoming students at the School of Electrical & Computer Engineering are expected to have a B2 certified knowledge of English.
Greek Language Course
European Educational Programmes Office organizes a Greek Language Course for Erasmus+ incoming students.
Courses take place both at winter and spring semester. A minimum number of five students is required in order to form a group.
Students are informed about the timetable of the courses during the Orientation Day.
Course title: INTRODUCTION TO ΤΗΕ MODERN GREEK LANGUAGE
In the context of welcoming Erasmus+ students to NTUA, the course is designed to introduce students to some basic aspects of the language and culture of Greece. The aim of the course is to give students an opportunity to become familiar with the basic syntactic structures as well as the basic vocabulary in the Greek language that will enable them to communicate effectively in everyday situations. For that purpose, short texts or short dialogues are used to respond to the needs of daily and also academic life.
The course is taught in both the fall and the spring semesters at Patission and Zografou Campus twice a week, and it is aimed at raw beginners in Modern Greek.
Course teaching hours are: 4 hours / week Χ 13 weeks (per semester).
At the end of the course students will be able to:
- Understand basic texts that concern topics of everyday and academic life.
- Interact with native speakers in daily life situations (shops, transport, etc.).
- Write short texts in Modern Greek skills describing everyday life events.
- Understand the basic characteristics and structures that underlie the Modern Greek language and will enable any interested students to continue their study of the language.
Final examination at the end of the semester.

Structure of Studies
The educational Curriculum at N.T.U.A. is divided into independent academic semesters, each one equivalent to 30 credit units. The courses taught in the different Schools last ten (five fall and five spring) semesters. The tenth semester is devoted to the Diploma Thesis.
Each semester covers in average 30 credit units and lasts 18 weeks: 13 weeks are devoted exclusively to teaching, 2 for the Christmas and Easter break, and the last 3 of each semester for final examinations in that semester’s courses.
In September, the week after the retake session is given over to vacations or special educational purposes.
Within two weeks from the start of each semester students are required to register at the Secretary of their School in order to receive a matriculation number which is necessary for applying for the Academic ID and using the Wi-Fi connection at Zografou campus.
The European Educational Programmes Office in concert with the ESN team of NTUA (http://ntua.esngreece.gr/) helps incoming students with the procedure during the Orientation Day.
Examinations and Assessment
In the winter examination period (January-February) are examined the courses of the winter semester. In the spring examination period (June-July) are examined the courses of the spring semester.
In September students may retake exams in any courses they have either failed or have not previously been examined on, or in any courses they wish to improve their grade, for the courses that have been declared during the registration period.
Students are assessed in each course by the course instructor, who sets written and/or oral examinations as he/she feels appropriate, based on intermediary educational procedures, such as reports, term papers, exercises.
