TUITION AND FEES
The tuition for Living Greek in Greece is $2500. This includes instruction and transportation, group meals, and housing during the weekend trip to Kefalonia and Zakynthos. It does not include housing in Selianitika. The Institute will also operate a free shuttle to and from Athens on arrival and departure day. Participants should bring their own edition of the program’s main text.
HOUSING AND OTHER COSTS
Participants are free to arrange their own housing in Selianitika (housing during the weekend trip will be provided by the Institute). The Paideia Institute has negotiated discounted group rates with trusted housing providers in dorm, hotel, and apartment style accommodations. Approximate rates for each type of lodging for the duration of the program are listed below. Contact information for housing providers and group discount codes will be provided upon acceptance.
Dorm accommodation at the Hellenikon Idyllion: $450
Hotel room shared with another participant: $750
Single Hotel Room: $1000
Apartment at the Hellenikon Idyllion (limited availability): $950
Airfare, transportation to and from the airport, daily expenses for meals, and spending money are not included in the cost of tuition. The cost of life in Greece can vary greatly depending on one’s tastes, but at the very least we recommend that participants budget €20/day for food. Please consider the exchange rate when planning your budget.
The Paideia Institute is able to offer a number of full and partial scholarships to students with financial need. Please visit our scholarships page to learn more.
