University of Kent at Athens

Classical and Archaeological Studies

Athens, the capital of Greece, one of the world's oldest cities, widely referred to as the centre of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. The city was a centre for the arts, learning and philosophy and the home of Plato and Aristotle. Modern Athens is central to economic, financial, industrial, political and cultural life in Greece.

The MA in Heritage Management is designed to combine the worlds of business and archaeology to teach the skills required for the management of heritage sites across the world. The programme is taught through a unique collaboration between the University of Kent and Athens University of Economics and Business, capitalising on the specialist teaching, research and expertise of both partners.


The teaching centre is in the Athenian suburb of Eleusina, one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. Eleusis is a fairly large town and has all amenities such as sports centres, large shops, restaurants, cafeterias, libraries, a museum and a summer cinema, music schools and foreign language schools. It has a good bus connection to Athens and the surrounding area.

The centre of Athens is only 30km away, and as such you have close access to many other major historical sites including the Parthenon, Ancient Corinth, Nemea and Thebes.


A list of suitable accommodation in Eleusina will be provided. We will also offer advice on arranging your own rented accommodation and liaise with landlords on your behalf.
