Students are obliged to attend a number of seminars organized by the Department during the academic year on specialized scientific issues presented by the teaching staff and the Ph.D. students of the Department, as well as by invited speakers from other Faculties of the University of Athens or from other Universities in Greece or from Universities from abroad. The attendance of the seminars is obligatory although they aren't graded with credit units.

For the award of the M.Sc. degree in Environmental Physics and Meteorology, students have to get at least 90 credit units from courses including the MSc thesis.
