Greece’s Education Minister Niki Kerameus has announced that Athens University will offer the first-ever English-language undergraduate course by a Greek state university.

Aimed exclusively at non-EU students, the four-year classics BA program course includes Greek Archaeology, Ancient Greek history, Literature of Ancient Greece, and modern Greek, Kerameus said on Wednesday at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (EKPA).

The multi-disciplinary course offers a unique opportunity to study the culture of ancient Greece while acquiring first-hand knowledge of some of Greece's most important archaeological monuments and sites, such as the Acropolis and the Parthenon, Delphi, Olympia and more.

“I am very proud of EKPA’s initiative, which proves further that our Greek universities can spread their wings abroad,” the Minister said.

She added that there are many benefits of doing the course in Greece and is sure there will be many foreign students interested: “If not here, where? If not us, who?” added Kerameus.

The course comprises eight semesters spread over four years and course fees amount to 6,000 euros per academic year. A maximum of 100 students will be accepted per academic year.

The course will launch in September 2020 and registrations open in January 2020.
