Incoming students

Welcome to the ATHENS Program site of BME!

Dear Students, 


After careful consideration, given the uncertainty of COVID-19 we regret to inform you that the ATHENS network has made the prudent decision to suspend the ATHENS November 2020 session. 

We share your deep disappointment in this decision as all parties affected have put so much effort in this , however the health and safety of all students is paramount and in this unpredictable times this felt like the best decision to be taken in the students’ best interest.

We remain deeply committed to the value and importance of international education and look forward to resuming the ATHENS activities as soon as the times will allow it again.

Next session (planned): March 13-20, 2021.
