Studies

ATEITH comprises 4 schools (faculties) and 17 Departments offering, in total, almost 1000 courses/modules in 20 Programmes of Studies, for local students. A great number of them (continuously expanding) are offered in English, either with full lectures, lab exercises and project assignments according to the local students’ timetable or with a proper combination of lectures/lab exercises and/or projects, depending on the number of attendees and the course requirements. In any case the learning outcomes (as described in the course catalogue) are guaranteed, provided that the students follow consistently the timetable and instructions given. Details about the courses offered in English can be found in the Course Catalogue. ATEITH is committed to provide a universally accessible and enjoyable teaching and learning experience for all students.

The academic year in ATEITH consists of two semesters. The winter (odd) semesters begin in September with an examination period for students that have failed their first examination period. Lessons normally start in October and finish in mid January, followed by an examination period. The spring (even) semester normally begins in the last week of February and finishes in the first week of June, followed by an examination period. For the exact academic year diary, incoming students may contact the International Relations Office or the responsible departmental coordinator.

Two major official vacation periods are included in the academic calendar, i.e. Christmas period (starting around 23 of December), during the winter semester, and Easter period, during the spring semester, both lasting two weeks. Additionally, the following days are national (or local) holidays within the academic calendar: 26th and 28th of October, 17th of November, 30th of January, 25th of March, and 1st of May.
