The Swedish research institutes in Athens, Rome and Istanbul are invaluable resources for the subject of Archaeology and Ancient History at Swedish universities. Like a number of comparable schools and institutes with various national backgrounds in these cities, the Swedish institutes function as international meeting places for research into ancient Mediterranean culture. The institutes in Athens and Rome offer special courses aimed at Master’s students in the subject. The courses are integrated into the academic system in Sweden, so students earn credits for completing them, as they would for courses at the universities in Sweden.
Applications to these courses are individual. The institutes allocate grants to the most qualified students.
The institutes in Athens and Rome also offer opportunities for doctoral students in Archaeology and Ancient History to apply for scholarships.
Much of the research conducted within the framework of the subject of Archaeology and Ancient History is published via the Swedish Institutes in Rome and Athens, in their own scholarly series.
