•   Study in Thessaloniki, an ancient city on the Aegean Sea, near world-class beaches and famous historic sites

•   A great fit for students looking to fulfill major requirements and electives, ACT offers coursework in English in business, computer science, humanities, and social sciences

Excursions & Cultural Experiences 

Experience hassle-free travel around Greece alongside your ACT classmates! Trips include a two-night excursion to Athens, visits to nearby UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Royal Tombs of the Macedonian dynasty in Vergina and the monasteries of Meteora, and opportunities to explore your host city of Thessaloniki. Students may also join optional activities including hikes on Mt. Olympus, an afternoon of relaxation at the Pozar hot springs or sailing around the Aegean Sea on a private sailboat. 

Housing & Meals

Students live in off-campus dormitories near downtown Thessaloniki and a short bus ride from the ACT campus. The housing locations are well served by the city’s public bus system, and ACT also provides a basic bus service to and from campus once per day. An ACT Residence Assistant (RA) resides at each housing location and is there to help students settle in and get to know Thessaloniki by organizing outings and planning activities. Meals are not included. Students will have access to grocery stores, cooking facilities, and a multitude of dining options with affordable meal choices.

Explore Thessaloniki

For the student seeking a unique study abroad site in Greece, Thessaloniki is the "road less taken," a culturally intact city, small, diverse, youthful, at the crossroads of east and west and the gateway to Southeastern Europe. From the beautiful sandy beaches and crystal clear blue waters of the Chalkidiki peninsula, to the snow covered ski resorts and challenging mountain treks, diverse natural wonders are all within a short trip away. Thessaloniki is ideally located to offer the best of both worlds. Most importantly, Thessaloniki is a lively university town with well over 100,000 university students, a vibrant city that invites and welcomes young people from all over the world.
