The Greek Ministry of Education, the British Embassy and the British Council are excited to announce the launch of the ambitious UK-Greece Strategic Partnership in Education to foster collaborations between UK and Greek universities programme.
This programme is a partnership between the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, the British Council Greece and the British Embassy in Athens and aims at supporting the establishment of collaborations between UK and Greek universities. The International Education Directorate of the UK Department for Education, Universities UK International, The Hellenic Universities Rectors’ Synod and Study in Greece support the programme, as members of its Advisory Board.
Through this programme, the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs and the British Council will support universities from both countries to identify and facilitate collaborations with their counterparts. These might include supporting them in developing joint and dual degrees, distance learning, summer programmes, academic and student exchanges, or other learning opportunities.
Universities who join will be offered the following four-step plan:
- Take part in our research among UK and Greek universities. The aim of the research is to identify subject areas and types of programmes of common interest.
- Join a series of thematic webinars with focus on common areas of interest.
- Join partner-matching activities
- Take part in delegation visits and exchanges
The kick-off event of the programme took place on Friday 5 March 2021. Please find here the recording of the launch event. More information about the programme can be found at www.britishcouncil.gr/en/programmes/education/uk-greece-strategic-partnership-in-education
