For the student seeking a unique study abroad site in Greece, the American College of Thessaloniki is ideal. 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.
ACT has a world-class campus with state of the art facilities which are unique to Southeastern Europe. The diverse student body representing 30 different nationalities exposes students to a variety of cultures and perspectives and enriches both their academic and social engagement. Courses are offered at a high academic standard and range from comprehensive liberal arts, technology and business to Greek language, history, culture and art. Study abroad students experience intellectual development, cultural immersion, and a growth of ethical sensitivity both in the classroom and in their co-curricular pursuits.
The American College of Thessaloniki provides off campus accommodation in downtown Thessaloniki.
Rooms are all fully furnished (including kitchen appliances in individual studios or in common areas), and priority is given based on the date of application receipt. Both single and double-occupancy options exist. Off-campus housing locations are well served by the city’s reliable bus system with buses running at 10-15 minute intervals. In addition, during the fall and spring semesters the college provides bus service to and from campus.
