Study resources

During the course of the programme, students have unlimited access to the following major library resources: the British School at Athens, which is located in the centre of Athens, and which holds a large collection of archaeological books, rare archive materials and collections; the library of the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB), also located in the centre of Athens and the library of the Heritage Management Organization in Elefsina, which is equipped with the most relevant materials for our courses. Kent’s electronic library of the university of Kent will be accessible online, whereas the electronic library of AUEB will also be accessible online.

Life in Elefsina

The programme is ideally located in the Athenian suburb of Elefsina, one of most important archaeological religious sites in the world as it was the home of the Eleusinian mysteries. It is also close to many other important sites including Parthenon, Ancient Corinth, Nemea and Thebes.

Elefsina is a quiet suburb of Athens with a very rich past, both ancient and modern. With bus connections to the centre of Athens as well as to Peloponnese, Elefsina is a great town to live and study, endowed with world-class heritage that will be most important for your studies and facilities such as a hospital, many restaurants and bars.

Most classes will take place either in the archaeological site, or in purpose built classrooms provided by the Heritage Management Organisation and the Municipality in Elefsina or central Athens. A list of suitable accommodation in Elefsina will be provided. We will also offer advice on arranging your own rented accommodation and liaise with landlords on your behalf.

A co-ordinator is available to liaise with out students, email [email protected]
