ERASMUS STUDENT CHARTER http://ec.europa.eu/education/erasmus/doc1057_en.htm

“To promote Erasmus students' awareness of their rights and obligations, each Erasmus student will receive an Erasmus Student Charter from their home university before leaving for the study period abroad. The Charter is a short information leaflet that tells Erasmus students what they are entitled to and also what they are expected to do during their secondment.”

“The Erasmus Student Charter outlines the basic entitlements of the Erasmus students, such as free tuition and full recognition of studies abroad. The Charter also specifies the main obligations of the Erasmus students, providing them with a concise idea of their duties in respect to both their home and host universities. It will be issued to all Erasmus students by their home universities before they leave for their study period abroad.”

5.3. THE STUDENT CULTURAL SOCIETIES

 

Harokopio University students are constantly rushing with their activities to keep up the youthful spirit of the University. On their own initiative, work and passion, expand and complement the educational nature of the academic community by creating societies that match their interests and concerns. So far the following groups have been operated:

  • Dance Society
  • Theatre Society
  • Sports Society
  • Photo Society
  • Martial Arts Society

They also, occasionally, organize their own activities, expressing their concerns and keeping the youthful spirit active in Harokopio University.

The agenda of the student community includes events such as excursions, political discussions, theatrical performances and film viewings.

In the last years, the Harokopio University students organize with great success the HAROKOPIO STUDENT FESTIVAL and the CHRISTMAS CHARITY BAZAAR.

Last but not least, a student team edits the periodical “To Vathaki tou Charokopeiou” – (“Harokopio University’s Reverb’”) where at least one column is devoted to Erasmus mobility matters. Erasmus guest students are encouraged to become member of the Student Press Team or at least to give a paper or an interview.

5.4. SCIENTIFIC & CULTURAL ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS

Harokopio University as organizing and host institution of scientific & cultural activities and events

Due to the dynamic involvement of Harokopio University’s components (the academic and administrative units & services as well as the Faculty individually) in many cooperation, scientific & cultural networks and projects, and thanks to the strong encouragement of the University Authorities, meetings, congresses, events are regularly organized on the campus.

Moreover, in compliance with its public relations policy and regarding its excellent infrastructures and advantageous location, Harokopio University is regularly preferred for hosting scientific and cultural activities and events.
