  • [01] Education minister in London

    Greece's Education and Religious Affairs Minister Evripides Stylianidis held talks here on Tuesday with the UK's minister for higher education Bill Rammell, while attending an international ministerial conference focusing on the use of technology in education.

    In statements after the meeting, Stylianidis said they discussed the exchange of know-how and systematic cooperation in the quality assessment of universities and other tertiary education institutes, a process that is now beginning in Greece.

    A second issue raised was that of cooperation between assessment and certification authorities, so that Greece might obtain a picture of the quality of each higher education institute in Britain that currently has a franchise operation based in Greece.

    "In view of a legislative act to regulate the chaotic field of 'free studies' centres, we are interested in finding out from the British State which of the universities that created adjuncts with this structure in Greece have the required quality and approval of the British State. We are operating within the framework of article 16 and of European law. As education ministry, however, we want to set down clear-cut rules for controlling quality in these structures that provide educational services prior to universities," the minister noted.
