Academics Location
The American College of Greece, founded in 1875, is the oldest and largest independent, American-sponsored college or university in Europe with a student population of over 2,500 and offering over 1,000 courses each year. It is the only institution in Athens with American accreditation (N.E. Association of Schools and Colleges). Located on a beautiful, wooded hillside in the attractive suburb of Aghia Paraskevi, the College’s picturesque 64-acre park-like campus offers an ideal backdrop to study in Athens, with modern classrooms, an extensive library and dedicated on campus health service. The College was chosen as the official training site for the 2004 U.S. Olympic team due to its high quality athletic facilities.

Courses catalog & descriptions
Live and study in this colorful, vibrant capital, the birthplace of western civilization, at the crossroads of east and west. Experience the Parthenon, the Acropolis, and the winding streets of the Plaka--the area of the old town known for its bustling flea market, lively tavernas, and craft shops. Enjoy the Mediterranean climate and relaxed pace.

AIFS provides several cultural excursions which include guided tour guides to further educate students about the wonders of Ancient Greece.

Cultural Excursion
Student Life
Students live in a beautiful residence complex just a short walk from the campus in the leafy suburb of Aghia Paraskevi. These apartments feature fully-equipped kitchens, marble bathrooms and floors, complimentary on-site laundry facilities, a quiet study area, outdoor areas for BBQs and relaxing, and a large lobby with TV, DVDs and games for casual group gatherings. Students share a double room in a two to four bedroom apartment within a residence with free wireless and wired Internet available in all rooms and common areas. Each apartment has a fully-equipped kitchen with dishes and cooking utensils provided including a cookbook designed by previous student residents. There is a 24/7 fitness center on site with fitness machines and free weights and Resident Life Staff are on hand to assist with any questions.

Transport into the city center (by public bus and Athens’ modern metro) takes about half an hour. Over 85% of the student body year round is Greek so AIFS students have ample opportunity to make local friends.
