Student positions are advertised by the academic co-ordinator and the selection is based on criteria specified by the Department of European and International Relations of the University as well as additional criteria announced by the academic co-ordinator before the beginning of the selection process.

Erasmus Mundus - HERMES

The University of Athens, in essence the School of Philosophy, is the coordinator of an Erasmus Mundus project, HERMES (an acronym for "Humanities Education Revitalized via Mundus ExperienceS").

In close collaboration with the Joint Coordinator, Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University (TSU), it leads a consortium of 15 universities which will exchange students and staff exclusively in the field of the Humanities.

These exchanges take place between on the one hand seven universities in six EU countries (Bulgaria, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Italy, Sweden) and on the other hand 8 universities in 5 countries in Eastern Europe (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Ukraine).

Both Erasmus and Erasmus Mundus, along with Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and all LLP projects, have now been integrated into Erasmus+, which has been running since the 1st January 2014.
