Study Abroad in Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki, sometimes called Thessalonica or Salonica, is the second-largest city in Greece and the capital of the Greek region of Macedonia. With a population of over one million people, Thessaloniki is a vibrant university city, boasting over 100,000 university students. In fact, more than one out of every ten residents is a student!

This lively atmosphere and student-oriented environment make Thessaloniki an appealing destination for American college students seeking a unique study abroad experience. The city offers a rich history, with landmarks such as the White Tower, the Byzantine city walls, and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Rotunda, providing opportunities for students interested in history, archaeology, and architecture.

The city's bustling waterfront, cafes, and restaurants offer a relaxed atmosphere for students to socialize and experience local Greek culture. Thessaloniki is also home to various cultural events, such as the Thessaloniki International Film Festival and the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival, catering to the diverse interests of students.

Thessaloniki is considered a safe city for students, but it's important to take common-sense precautions, such as being aware of your surroundings and not walking alone late at night. The cost of living in Thessaloniki is more affordable compared to Athens, and students should take advantage of student discounts on attractions, transportation, and food.
