  • Greek University programs face another blow

Universities around Australia need to adopt a new model in order to survive states a new report by Ernst & Young, and Greek programs are set to suffer. According to the report, no university will survive on the current model by 2025. Ernst & Young said of the 39 universities in Australia, none of them will be around in ten to 15 years unless they change their current business model.

  •  Modern Greek program for Griffith University

The Modern Greek program for Griffith University is on its way to getting the green light after last year’s discussions between university Professor Michael Tsianikas, Head of the Modern Greek program at Flinders University. The program has the total support of the Greek Community in Queensland, with the Honorary Consul of Greece in Queensland, Jim Raptis, promising six scholarships for Griffith University’s students who choose to study Modern Greek. The online Modern Greek program will be established and materialized by the Flinders University Greek program, with Griffith University signing a memorandum of understanding early this year.

According to Tsianikas’ statement to Neos Kosmos: “Griffith University and the Greek community in Queensland have for many years – more than 15 – been trying to establish a program”. The difficulties of creating such a program in the past, he said, were due to low enrollment numbers and a lack of quality staff to deliver the program and, most importantly, conduct high quality research and active participation in the University’s administration.

A full Modern Greek Program has been established since 2003 at Charles Darwin University (CDU) through Flinders University, and both institutions recently renewed the memorandum of understanding for the program to be materialized by the end of 2018.“At the time, online [study] was not available, and we were thinking of employing a part-time teacher [in Queensland],” Tsianikas said. “It’s a critical time for the Greek language in Australia. The community needs to embrace new ideas and new technology, and be proactive [in delivering] solutions for Modern Greek [studies]. It’s time for Australia to deliver national and international solutions, and [for] the government to embrace these new kinds of strategies – otherwise Modern Greek will disappear from tertiary education.” Tsianikas added.
