MA in Heritage Management
The MA in Heritage Management is a unique programme combining the worlds of archaeology and business and is taught in Eleusis, just 14km from Athens, in an area of world-class archaeological significance. It focuses on teaching the skills required for the management of heritage sites across the world and how to work effectively with archaeologists, architects, conservators, marketing and education specialists whilst also fundraising and supervising specific projects.
This new programme is a collaborative dual award from the University of Kent and the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB); a partnership which ensures world-class tuition and interdisciplinary environment. It is overseen by the Initiative for Heritage Conservancy, a dynamic new research and education project with international funding which is creating its own opportunities in the field.
There are a number of scholarships available for this MA programme, as well as the wider University of Kent scholarhips.

We are delighted to announce that the Bodossaki foundation and the University of Kent have announced scholarships for the coming academic year. There are 0.5 Kent scholarships (one half scholarship) for non-Greek students, as well as two (or four half scholarships) Bodossaki scholarships for Greek nationals or Greek descent applicants. Applicants should state with their application that they are applying for a scholarship, clarify whether a full or a half scholarship is what they are going for, and in one paragraph (no more than 200 words) explain why they should receive a scholarship. Competition for scholarships is expected to be stiff and only first class students are encouraged to apply. The scholarship decisions are taken in March and, in the first instance, only the applicants who have already been offered a place will be considered.
Two half scholarships were awarded in 2011; the Kent scholar was Naja Werther, while the Bodossakis scholar was Dimitris Ioannidis. In 2012, two further half scholarships were awarded; the Kent scholar was Nader Ayadi, while the Bodossakis scholar was Fanis Karafotias.
We are grateful to the Bodossakis foundation for their continuing support.
