ACT is close to some of the most beautiful beaches in all of Greece, and has several flights to Athens or many of the Greek isles for a weekend getaway.



GreeceACT offers a range of business courses (marketing, management, and finance), computer science, English, communications, psychology, politics, history, art history, and Greek language and culture. More specific course options can be found here.
