Participants interested in Greece’s historic and modern role as a crossroads of trade and culture between Europe and the Middle East will enjoy the opportunity to study in Greece’s second-largest city. Thessaloniki, founded in 315 B.C., has historical and cultural roots in the Macedonian, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires. Today, it is an important Aegean port and a center of commerce, culture, and education.

N.U.in Greece participants study at the American College of Thessaloniki (ACT), a private American university located within the grounds of Anatolia College, on the outskirts of the city. In addition to engaging and challenging course work focused on core and degree requirements, ACT offers N.U.in participants a variety of experiential learning opportunities, including co-curricular programs, Service-Learning, and group travel.

Living in Thessaloniki, participants will also have ample opportunities to connect with the local community and rich cultural offerings. The city’s location also makes it possible to expand your cultural engagement and historical perspective through organized trips around the region.

All courses are conducted in English. To participate in N.U.in Greece, students must be 17 years old by the date of departure.
