Which class can I enroll in?
For language courses, the student is placed in an advanced class after an exam so that he is at the same level as the rest of the students in the department he wishes to attend.
For Indian Philosophy and History and Culture courses, the student should be familiar with the core values of the Indian Subcontinent. Knowledge of Sanskrit is helpful, but not necessary.
Where and how are the lessons held?
The lessons are held in small groups (up to 6 students) at the Center for Indian & Indο-Hellenic Studies in Athens or via the internet. Lessons take place once a week and last two hours. Lectures and conferences for larger groups are organized in affiliated centers. Due to the pandemic, for the last two years classes have been held exclusively through the ZOOM online platform.
For personal contact between students and teachers, KIESA organizes small walking tours and social events at regular intervals.
Do I need to become a member of ELINEPA?
The courses at the Center for Indian and Indο-Hellenic Studies take place in the context of the educational activities of the Hellenic-Indian Society for Culture and Development (ELINEPA) and are addressed exclusively to its members. If you are not a member, you should register or renew your membership before the start of the courses. Complete the membership application online HERE.
Is there a certificate of study?
At the end of each course, there are written exams for students who wish to receive a certificate of successful completion. Those who attended at least 50% of the course have the right to participate in the exams. Students who successfully complete their studies in one year receive a certificate of study with which they can enroll in the next year.
The Foreign Languages Teaching Center issues a Certificate of Attendance & Certificate of Studies to those who successfully complete the course in which they are enrolled.
