Welcome to the Hellenic Open University's LLP- Erasmus Programme Website



Erasmus is the European Commission's flagship educational programme for Higher Education students, teachers and institutions. It was introduced with the aim of increasing student mobility within Europe. Erasmus forms part of the EU Lifelong Learning Programme (2007-2013). It encourages student and staff mobility for work and study, and promotes trans-national co-operation projects among universities across Europe. The scheme currently involves nine out of every ten European higher education establishments and supports co-operation between the universities of 33 countries.

ิhe Hellenic Open University extends a warm welcome to students/ staff interested in visiting Patras under the ERASMUS programme.

We strive to ensure that ERASMUS students/ staff coming here receive all the necessary attention and assistance. The Educational Planning Department, and its ERASMUS- LdV Office, is responsible for the overall co-ordination of the programme and can assist with the various practical and personal matters which arise for students/ staff settling into a new environment, in an unfamiliar country.

We hope you will find the information in this website informative and helpful. It covers such matters as existing bilateral cooperation agreements, available courses/ modules, application and registration procedures and recognition framework.
