CultTech MSc is taught on the historic campus of the University in Kalamata, the second largest city in the Peloponnese. Kalamata is located at the center of the Messinian Bay and at the foot of the breathtaking Mount Taygetos. Students attending the CultTech MSc program have the opportunity to live and attend courses near the city centre and only a short walk from the iconic beachfront.
In contrast to its size, Kalamata remains a picturesque seaside town true to its culture and traditions. From folk dancing, traditional cuisine to paragliding and hiking adventures students can experience the essence of Kalamata city, sea and mountain. About 10% of the city’s population (80,000) are students registered in the two higher educational institutions in the city: The University of the Peloponnese and the Technical Educational Institute of the Peloponnese which recently merged and create the largest University in Greece. The city offers a vast variety of cultural and sport activities, as well as nightlife options. Kalamata is also known as the national capital of modern dance, hosting annually for the past 25 years, the International Kalamata Dance Festival.
