The Finnish Institute at Athens has organised introductory courses for Finnish undergraduate students since 1999. At first, the introductory course focused solely on ancient Greece, but since 2006 it has been organised in collaboration with the Finnish Institute at Rome under the title Introduction to Ancient Greece and Rome. The annual course, which now lasts for six weeks, begins in Athens and ends in Rome.

Moreover, in summer 2006 an archaeological fieldwork pilot course connected with the Institute’s research project in Thesprotia, was organised together with the Universities of Helsinki and Oulu.

As far as possible, aside from its own courses, the Institute aims to promote courses and excursions in Greece organised by other Finnish scientific institutions. For instance, the Institute has participated in arranging courses in Classical Philology, History, Archaeology, Philosophy, Literature, Theatre Research and Modern Greek.
