The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about important challenges for Universities, staff and students. One key challenge has been adapting teaching practice and delivery to the changing and uncertain circumstances that we are all facing. An additional challenge for EUROSUD is that our teaching takes place across six countries which are subject to different levels of infection, restrictions and safety measures. The Universities that participate in the EUROSUD Consortium also vary in terms of their facilities and therefore their ability to deliver teaching face-to-face while respecting national restrictions.

In this page, we will publish up to date information on how teaching is delivered at any one time across our six partner Universities. We will also aim to provide information on local COVID-related conditions.

How will COVID-19 affect the programme in 2022?
‘We are hopeful that COVID-19 will not affect delivery of the EUROSUD programme beginning in September 2022 and that students joining the programme in 2022 will not be affected by COVID-related travel restrictions. We will, however, continue to monitor the situation carefully throughout the year and publish any relevant updates on our website.’


Currently, the plan for the upcoming teaching Semester September 2021 is as follows:

University of Glasgow: teaching will be on a blended learning basis depending on class sizes (more updates here)

National and Kapodistrian University of Athens: teaching will take place face to face

Greece is taking steps towards getting back into normality. In order to access public spaces (indoor and outdoor), such as shops, restaurants, cinemas, museums, public services etc. you need to demonstrate your proof of vaccination, as well as your identification documents. Moreover, it is required to use masks in all indoor spaces and public transportation. In case you are not vaccinated you will need to present a 48 hour negative rapid test in order to enter shops, pharmacies etc. However, in the latter case, the entrance in other indoor spaces, such as museums, theatres, gyms, restaurants etc. is not allowed. To enter the facilities of the National Kapodistrian University of Athens you will need to present your vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test (twice per week).
