Incoming students for Placement




The Agricultural University of Athens is awarded with the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education. We only can accept students for training within the framework of Erasmus+ for Placements.

You can be placed and work at one of our Departmental Laboratories for a period of 2 to 12 months.

In order to find an available position you must have a look at the Departmental websites . Choose the Laboratory that is close to your scientific interests and contact the teaching staff member in charge.

Explain that you are an Erasmus candidate and that your University will cover your expenses. It is essential to give information about the requested period of mobility, a short CV, English language knowledge (a minimum of level B2 of CEFR is prerequisite), what you are interested in, etc. If there is an application deadline at your University, don’t forget to mention it.

Mind that each teaching staff member decides separately the possible number of trainees at the Laboratory. However, not all laboratories accept students for training, especially in August.

If someone accepts you, contact us at because the rest of procedure is done exclusively by our Office.

General Liability Insurance Coverage for third party is related to personal injury and / or damages caused by you during your stay in Greece (independently whether you are in AUA or not).
