Study Programmes - Teaching - Research

 

 

► Our University’s reputation rests on the quality of the research and teaching and its multi-disciplinary profile offering exciting research and learning opportunities across a wide range of disciplines.
  ► The Panteion University promotes a great number of initiatives targeted at designing, implementing and assessing curricula and improving management, teaching innovation and teacher training so as to meet the social demands for quality teaching. The Panteion University also fosters the implementation of teaching and research innovation projects, the creation of new teaching and research resources, the 

support to new educational experiences and the elaboration of reports and analysis to enhance the quality of teaching and encourage teaching and researching innovation.

 


Faculties and Academic Departments


 

► Every academic department awards a single degree. In some academic departments the single degree encapsulates directions or specializations. The study programme of every academic department includes compulsory and elective courses. The Panteion University students may attend courses from other Panteion University’s departments or other Universities with which the Panteion University collaborates. Off-campus courses are selected after having been defined by the department in which the student is registered. The study programmes are yearly reassessed and determined by the General Assembly of every academic department in April. The study programmes for the following academic year are announced at the end of every academic year.

 


Internships


► An important part of a student’s programme is the internship, taking place in the private or in the public sector. The Internship Programme provides students with experience related to their field of study and interaction 

 
with the labor market. An internship lasts for about three months, it is one of the eligible courses of the study programme and after its completion the students are awarded credits (ECTS) counted in their degree. 
 

 


Dissertation


► In some departments students that are enrolled in the last academic semester of their studies submit a dissertation regarded as a compulsory course. The dissertation gives the students one last opportunity to be evaluated and to evaluate themselves with respect to the knowledge and skills they 

have acquired in their undergraduate studies. In cooperation with their supervisor, students test their ability to express themselves on a scholarly subject of interest to them, by writing a paper that will also demonstrate their skills in bibliographical research and in planning and conducting scholarly investigation. But above all it will reflect their ability to set out their theoretical thesis clearly and to justify it on a theoretical or methodological basis.

 


Examination - Grades


► An academic year is made up of two semesters, the winter and the spring semester of 13 weeks each. Students are provided with the opportunity to repeat a course that they have not passed during winter and spring terms.

► Semester examinations, written or oral, are held at the

 

end of every semester. If a student fails in a semester course exam (in February for the winter semester and in June for the spring semester), he is not considered to have completed the course until he successfully sits for a supplementary assessment in September.

► Grades are allocated on a scale of 0-10 (no decimal points) with a minimum passing mark of five. 

 

 

 

Degree


► To receive a degree, students must have completed the 

required number of academic semesters of study (min 4 semesters, max 8 semesters), which is defined by the level of studies (undergraduate-postgraduate-doctorate level) of the student and the category in which the student belongs to according the status of his entrance in the University. At the same time the student must have gathered the required number of credits, both as a total and per category of courses, as defined by the department in which the student is enrolled.
