Each year, several students from the Swiss Universities are invited to take part to fieldworks and museum study seasons. These activities take place on the island of Euboea, mostly in Eretria, from March to October.

Students are accommodated during their stay in the House of the Swiss School in Eretria, a 19th century neoclassical house with a recently built annexe equipped with all commodities. Travel costs are at the charge of the caniddates or of their Universities. A small allowance covers food expense.

How to apply

Advanced students reading for a Bachelor or a Master in Classical archaeology are preferred, but all applications will be taken into consideration. A previous experience of at least 4 weeks in field archaeology is a prerequisite. Languages spoken are French or German; Greek is not a prerequisite but should be learned on the site. Given the small number of internship positions, preference is given to candidates from Swiss Universities.

In order to apply, send the completed application form together with a curriculum vitae to as well as to your Professor of Classical Archaeology (no paper, only electronic documents please).

Application deadline for next year: 31st of December
