Intermediate Greek

This course is a study of Greek language for students who have completed the Beginners Greek course or an equivalent (Greek to GCSE standard). The course aims to develop students’ knowledge of Greek grammar and widen their vocabulary, enabling them to master regular syntactical constructions and read standard Attic Greek texts. The course covers sections 17-29 of Balme and Lawall’s Athenaze II.

By the end of the course students should be able to understand all syntactical constructions covered in these units and demonstrate their ability by translating from Greek into English and from English into Greek. In addition to the coursebook work, students will study a short unadapted text and practise reading and translating Attic Greek texts at sight.

This Short Course can be taken as a stand-alone course or it may be available as part of a Certificate of Higher Education.

    Entry requirements

    Most of our short courses have no formal entry requirements and are open to all students. You may have to fulfil specific prerequisites for some intermediate-level or advanced-level courses, but these will be specified where relevant.

    Visa requirements

    If you are not from the European Economic Area (EEA) and/or Switzerland and you are coming to study in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa.

    The visa you apply for varies according to the length of your course:

    • Courses of more than six months’ duration.
    • Courses of less than six months’ duration.
    • Pre-sessional English language courses.

    International students who require a Tier 4 visa should apply for our three-year evening study BA/BSc/LLB degrees, as these are classified as full-time study and qualify for student visa status. If you are living in the UK on a Tier 4 visa, you will not be eligible to enrol as a student on Birkbeck’s part-time evening study degrees.

    For full information, read our visa information for international students page.
