ANU is one of 10 universities who are members of the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens (AAIA).
The AAIA aims to promote the study of ancient, mediaeval, and modern Greece in both Greece and Australia, and is the focal point for Australian research and excavations in Greece.
Established in 1980, the AAIA has an office and hostel in Athens, and visitors to Greece may take advantage of these facilities. Its office in Australia is at the University of Sydney.
The Friends groups, which are all around the Australia, support the AAIA and offer scholarships for students to visit Greece to pursue either their research projects or take part in the AAIA’s excavations. For more information please visit the Canberra (ANU) Friends AAIA page.
