Whilst you are here


What to do when you arrive in Thessaloniki

If you are an Erasmus student, you should enrol at the University of Macedonia. To do this, you need to contact the departmental administrative personnel to give you instructions. You should have with you your passport or any other identification and your European Health Insurance Card. Make sure to apply for a student card (it takes around two weeks to be issued after your enrolement and the departmental administrative personnel will provide instructions for the application). 

You can use your student card to issue a public transport (bus) card. A monthly travel card costs €15.

Once you are enrolled we suggest you contact your Erasmus Departmental Coordinator at the University of Macedonia in order to discuss your Learning Agreement. In case of changes make sure you follow the instructions given by your home Institution and afterwards you need to register your courses in "students web" platform (instructions can be provided by the departmental administrative personnel).

Bare in mind that University of Macedonia has a 10 month academic year period. Each academic year is divided into two semesters (four month period) and three examination sessions with holidays in between. Each semester normally consists of 13 full weeks of instruction and three or four of examination, but every year the dates differ. That is why you have to check the academic calendar
