MAY PROGRAM: $1662 or €1387 for participants taking one course. For those registering in two courses we offer a 10% discount on both courses for a total of $2,992 or €2497. The cost of an accompanying friend or relative who is not registered for a course is $634 or €529.
JULY PROGRAMS: $2700 or €2253 for participants taking one course. For those registering in two courses we offer a 10% discount on the second course for a total of $5130 or €4281. Due to the intensive nature of our July programs, the two courses can be taken only in the two consecutive programs, one in each. The cost of an accompanying friend or relative who is not registered for a course is $1112 or €928.
Payments for the student and accompanying adult(s) in all programs have to be done simultaneously.
The tuition covers:
- Attendance of the lectures and issuing of an official transcript by Democritus University with the grade of the student and the number of credits obtained. The transcript can be used for transferring the credits to the student’s home institution. Adult learners will not be issued a transcript since they will not be subjected to a rigorous exam and grading policy.
Stay for 6 nights at the 5-star Lucy hotel in Kavala and for 2 nights at the 4-star Alexandra Beach hotel in Thassos when it comes to the May program and for 13 days at Lucy hotel for the July programs. Rooms are of double occupancy, including for the accompanying guests. Please bear in mind that, in the case of late registrations, we may have to use triple occupancy rooms.
All breakfasts are included as well as 6 dinners for the May program and 10 dinners for the July programs. All meals are served buffet style. Unbound Prometheus does not serve alcohol in any of its planned meals due to age restrictions which vary with young students coming from a wide array of countries. However, individual participants of a legal drinking age are obviously free to order alcohol with their meals at their own expense.
Free transportation regarding the bus and ferry rides for all programs' planned excursions as well as the full-day boat ride in Thassos for the July programs. It also includes the sailboat ride for the May program.
Logistical support provided by the Academic Director and the staff of the program.
Access to the Academic Director of the program as well as the faculty who can provide informal advise for academic applications, particularly useful to high school students. Students who achieve a grade of A or A- will also be entitled to ask for a letter of recommendation which can be used, among others, for college or transfer applications.
The tuition does not cover:
Airfare to and from Kavala.
Transportation cost to and from the airport.
The cost of leisure activities other than the excursions organized by the program.
The cost of the reading materials that will be assigned by the instructors. Some instructors may choose to assign an electronic version of a book which is cheaper. Instructors will contact their own students well before the start of the program to provide further details.
college students: a cost
The Unbound Prometheus summer program is priced very competitively compared to other European summer programs which rarely offer faculty of the same caliber and virtually never offer the quality of accommodations and leisure activities provided by us. Students who attend US universities should consider the cost of our courses vs the cost of taking a summer course in their own institution. The cost of the Unbound Prometheus courses is roughly half compared to tuition cost in a top private US university. Not to mention that, unlike US universities, we have no extra fees such as registration fees. Even when the airfare is added our program is still cheaper. In the end, the decision boils down to taking a summer course in your own institution vs spending less money and take it in an idyllic location, staying in a five-star hotel, have most of your meals covered, and engage in some fun activities in a different cultural environment.
special tuition rates for citizens
and residents of greece
In recognition of the severe impact of the economic crisis which plagues Greek households for nearly a decade, Unbound Prometheus has decided to offer special tuition arrangements for Greek citizens who reside permanently in Greece. Please write to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
The registration deadline for all programs, which was March 1st, 2018, has now passed. However, since the hotels we use for the three programs are not fully booked yet, registrations will continue until further notice (to be posted in our website). It is important to stress that the Kavala/Thassos region receives a large number of tourists each summer and hence the hotels may become fully booked at any point until the beginning of our programs in which case we will not be able to receive more students. It follows that those interested in taking our courses should proceed with registration as soon as possible.
Prospective participants should fill the registration form when they are ready to proceed with the payment since it is the latter that formalizes the registration.
