9a. How many contact sessions are there? Is it necessary to attend them

A total of five, and in some cases six, contact sessions are held for undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Student can find their Contact Session Schedules at the Online Service http://open.eap.gr and will also receive relevant information from their tutors.

Contact Sessions are not obligatory, but are however considered essential. As they help to clarify obscure points are clarified and students are helped to gain a better understanding of the subject. In addition students improve their communication with their Tutor. If in any case a student is unable to attend a Contact Session, they should be informed on the topics covered by their fellow student or by their Tutor, although this does not lie within their obligations.
