When am I supposed to pay for my accommodation. Is it obligatory to participate in the School's activities?
You are well advised to pre-pay the Student Residences in full by the time of your arrival, as money tend to slip away easily in a vibrant student city like Thessaloniki. In case your dues to the Residence are not paid in time and well before your departure, the Department of Studies reserves the right to suspend the scholarshi status with considerable consequences. According to the Scholarships' Regulations Handbook, conduct unbecoming of a scholarship holder will not be tolerated.
Events and trips are organized by the School for your own benefit, seeking to enrich the course with extra-curricular activities (dancing lessons, museum visits, visit to sites of historic value, farewell party). You can have your own agenda, however do know that slots to popular activities tend to be filled by day one of the course.
