About the University of Kent at Athens

The University of Kent has a unique collaboration with the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB), capitalising on the specialist teaching, research and expertise of both partners. Students from all over the world learn how to work with all forms of heritage in the private and public sectors.

Inspirational location

The MA in Heritage Management is taught in the Athenian suburb of Elefsina. It is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world and the birthplace of civilisation, according to the Greeks and the Romans. You are also close to important historical sites including the Parthenon, Ancient Corinth, Nemea and Thebes.

Academic excellence

World-class tuition is provided by international researchers from both universities, as well as guest lecturers who are leaders in their field. You are also supported by local Elefsina administrative staff, AUEB staff in Athens and Kent staff in Canterbury. They all work to ensure your time with us is a positive, enjoyable and rewarding experience.

The MA in Heritage Management based in Greece is a very worthwhile enterprise. The skills you gain from the programme are much in demand.

~ Professor Lord Colin Renfrew

Practical focus

The programme covers a wide range of issues and you learn how to work effectively with other colleagues, as well as architects, conservators, government and international agencies, local authorities and stakeholders. It teaches you how to conceive, plan, fundraise and supervise a heritage management project.

Superb student experience

Elefsina has a range of amenities including sports centres, restaurants, large shops and a cinema. The town has good international transport links and a bus connection to Athens. Immerse yourself in the historical and cultural environment of ancient Greece, while exploring all that modern Athens has to offer.

Our MA in Heritage Management provides professionals with the unique opportunity to fine tune their skills and knowledge so that they are able to manage archaeological sites anywhere in the world.
