Our online platform allows students to study the Modern Greek language from anywhere. You may be eligible to enrol in our courses and receive academic credit towards your degree at your home institution.

You may be eligible to enrol at SFU as a concurrent student while you are still in highschool and take Greek language courses for credit.

Non-Credit Option

Community members

The SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies has joined forces with the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad in the Hellenic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to launch StaEllinika, a new initiative to deliver new tools for Greek language education to the diaspora.

The initiative grew out the Rebooting the Greek Language project, a two-year initiative supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, to bring new technologies and advances in pedagogy to bear on the preservation of the Greek language in the diaspora.

Community members can download the apps for free, now in beta release, for young learners in preschool to late elementary. A full release is planned for fall 2020.
