La Trobe Signs MoU With Greek University

La Trobe University announces Greek language program will continue to be taught

LA Trobe University in Victoria, Australia has signed a memorandum of understanding with the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), paving the way for a partnership between the two institutions.

La Trobe's Associate Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences (International) Dr Raul Sanchez-Urribarri said the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) was Greece's oldest and largest university.

"It is one of the country's most prestigious tertiary institutions," Dr Sanchez-Urribarri said.

"La Trobe is the only university in Victoria that provides Greek language studies, so to partner with Greece's top university offers great networking opportunities, university exchange options and new course offering to our students.

"La Trobe students have been enjoying NKUA's annual intensive language courses and visiting NKUA students during our study tour."

NKUA recently introduced a Bachelor of Arts offered in English that focuses on Archaeology, History and Literature of Ancient Greece.

La Trobe Greek Studies Coordinator Dr Stavroula Nikoloudis said this degree would appeal to a wide range of La Trobe students who wished to undertake parts of their studies in Greece.

Dr Stavroula Nikoloudis said the details of the partnership would be finalised over the coming months
