If you’re a student or a young trainee looking for some inspiration before traveling, studying or working abroad, I guess you’re at the right page.

If you’re already following us, I guessed you have noticed that at itinari, we are building a database of inspirations and stories related to tourism in Europe. At the same time we’re working on creating articles/pages that will help the Erasmus+/exchange/international students find their way around & settle down in their new cities (from accommodation, to public transport, to restaurants, sightseeing and night life ….).

So far we are proud to present a trustworthy and developing database, that includes customised informative pages for some of the most significant universities in Europe.

By using our tool we encapsulate a variety of information into our platform, giving in that way the chance to our young audience to explore and get informed properly about their new destination before moving abroad.

In the upcoming series of pages, we will present some of the most significant universities in Europe by regions and countries. Stay tuned.

Part 4. Greece

Greece is probably one of the most appropriate European cities to choose for your Erasmus or living abroad experience. The sun is always shining and the people’s incredible hospitality guarantees an unforgettable expat experience.

The country does welcome foreign workers and Greece's heavy promotion of tourism means that there are usually opportunities in the hospitality industry. Life in general is more laid back. The locals love to talk about family and politics so you should definitely be prepared to answer endless questions about your children, siblings and their financial situation. Most meals are cooked in oil with very little water added. This method results in very tasty Mediterranean flavoured meals but takes some getting used to.

At the same time Greece offers a variety of institutions and universities participating in multiple European Youth mobility programmes, such as the Erasmus Plus, reason that makes the country an international/multicultural and well considerable expat destination!

Below you may find a list with the most significant youth mobility partner institutions & universities that can be found in Athens & Thessaloniki, covered so far in our database.

1) Athens University of Economics and Business

2) The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

3) The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

4) The University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki

5) The Modern Greek Language Teaching Center of Athens

By clicking on the links inserted in each university separately, you will have the chance to get informed specifically about each one of those in detail and explore through our database the cultural & educational activities offered by those institutions.
