Spend your summer learning on the streets of Athens and its curious neighborhoods. Discover the city’s rich heritage from the ancient to the modern through music, Athenian street life, fascinating traditions and stunning scenery. Where else will you watch Homer’s rosy-fingered dawn slowly turn the acropolis pink?
Whether you are chasing a news story or exploring iconic historical and cultural sites, your focus will be on learning outside the classroom. Take a class at the Acropolis; watch a rally in front of the Hellenic Parliament; visit the panhellenic sanctuary at Olympia or a documentary film lab in Athens; enjoy an outdoor music performance at the Roman Odeion or explore a 19th century villa on a picturesque island. The warm waters of the Mediterranean are a short tram ride away and the justifiably famous islands are easily accessible from Athens’ ferry ports.
This program is part of the Summer Sessions initiative, allowing you to mix a session on this program with a session on a program in another country.
If you’re looking for the widest choice of courses in South Africa and an institution with weight and prestige then studying abroad at the University of Cape Town (UCT) is probably the best bet for you. On Arcadia’s program, you can also add courses and experiences that get you involved with local communities and service efforts.
Perched on the side of Table Mountain, UCT has stunning vistas from every angle and is a popular choice for study abroad. Of its population of more than 20,000, about 4,000 students are international, creating a dynamic energy on campus and in the more than 100 clubs and societies. The Arcadia Cape Town Center is located right on campus at UCT, in the Ivan Tom’s Building, which sits between the upper campus and the Medical School on campus at UCT.
All students on this program take part in Arcadia’s Course, Introducing South Africa: History, Politics and Culture, which provides a forum for reflection and analysis on current issues and challenges facing South Africans - an insightful starting point for all students. You then have a choice:
Take three courses at UCT enjoying a wide choice of subjects with outstanding faculty. The broad selection runs from humanities to science, engineering and commerce.
Or, starting in Spring 2019, you can take two courses at UCT and one at the Cornerstone Institute, an innovative, not-for-profit institution focused on teaching and learning in service of others, to advance human dignity and social justice for all. This is a great option for students who appreciate and benefit from a smaller school’s personal attention and intimate class sizes with lots of interaction with local students.
UTS is located in the heart of Sydney's media district and it is little surprise that UTS has one of the most competitive communications programs in Australia.

Two key features of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) convey its character and appeal. First, the courses at UTS are progressive in nature, intellectually engaging and frequently industry linked. Second, a location in the very heart of Sydney, only minutes from the Central Railway Station and Darling Harbour. UTS has created a sticky campus concept and installed private rooms and study/lounge areas throughout campus that look like mini living rooms. Additionally, there are group work areas equipped with Smart Boards, plasma screens, and touch screen projectors.
