With the aim of attracting competent students, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens offers six (6) Merit Scholarships of Eur 10,000 each, to applicants who wish to pursue the “BA program in the Archaeology, History, and Literature of Ancient Greece”, starting in fall 2020.
The application starting date is the 19th of May 2020, however the closing date is getting an extension as we are aware of delays applicants face in their effort to certify their documents due to lockdown restrictions in most countries. Thus, the new deadline is the 7th of July 2020, at midnight (Greece local time: UTC/GMT +3 hours), and results will be announced by the 15th of July 2020.
This four-year BA program is taught in English and is devoted to the study of Greek Antiquity. Aimed at international students, it offers a unique opportunity to study the culture of ancient Greece with on-site study of archaeological monuments and sites, such as the Athenian Acropolis, Delphi and Olympia.
Wishing to strengthen the cultural and educational bonds between our two countries, we kindly ask you to spread this information as widely as possible.
It can offer students the opportunity to live for a while in the country of origin of values that have greatly influenced Western civilizations today, e.g., Democracy, Philosophy, Art and Science, and get acquainted with its historic monuments and culture, by studying in a language that most already speak, i.e., English. By joining this BA program, they may also choose to learn Modern Greek by specialized teachers, seizing the opportunity to connect with today’s Greece through the study of the past.
Apart from high school graduates who will enroll for this full four-year BA program, and may apply for the above scholarships, potential students may also include exchange students who would be welcome for the period of one or two years, through bilateral agreements between the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the university with which they are already registered.
Looking forward to welcoming students from your country.
