The International Academy for Advanced Studies is the largest educational program in the Mediterranean that brings together more than 70 students from about 20 countries (North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and more) for a unique experience of interdisciplinary education and cross cultural communication, right on the birthplace of Europe. Discover Greece, the environment and the mentality that still connects the past to the future while immerging in a life changing adventure that can unfold new opportunities.
The academic program explores major fundamental ideas of contemporary issues, from political economy to geopolitics and environment, conflict management, civil society and its roots of Plato, and a lot more. In addition to classes, students participate in dialogue designed to promote intercultural understanding. This combination of activities leads to an exchange of ideas that cannot be gained elsewhere and unexpected friendships that interlock the four corners of the world.
The mission of the Academy is to enhance the leadership potential of outstanding young academics from diverse religious and ethnic backgrounds and applying the principles of Socrates in education, engender value societies across the globe.
Upon successful completion of TIAAS students will receive the European Union Diploma Supplement, through our academic partners.
As a participant in TIAAS, students from a wide range of nationalities, religions, cultures and educational backgrounds, have the opportunity to learn, interact, and share their experiences in ways that can benefit their professional and personal development, in an ideal setting, comparing and contrasting languages, customs, and cultures with their counterparts, while forming friendships and a global network that can last a lifetime within the active alumni family.
Graduates of our programs have discovered how this vast network opens doors never thought of, leading to life changing opportunities in various corners of the world.
Come join us this summer in Greece and Crete in particular, and immerse in its ages of history, culture and traditions still alive in the local temperament today.
The International Academy for Advanced Studies is hosted at the campus of the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania, Greece.
The 2013 dates are July 19 – August 8, and will accept students from all geographical regions.
