The ATHENS week permits participants from different institutions to take short courses of a high scientific level and to mix with students of different nationalities and backgrounds. About 60 courses are offered at each ATHENS Session and cover a wide range of thematic, from engineering to social sciences. The objective is to give students a brief immersion in another European education system.

Cultural Activities

“European dimension” activities are organized to complement the course a student follows. The purpose is to permit ATHENS students to better know the course organizing institution, as well as the European city where the course is held. Of special importance is the possibility of mixing with students of different nationalities and backgrounds during these activities.

Cultural activities are an integral part of an ATHENS Session; participation is thus mandatory.


Travel costs, by bus, train or flight from one institution to another vary tremendously.


In most institutions, housing is the student’s responsibility. The ones that are able to offer university housing will inform students after acceptance into the programme.
