Columbia and Yale universities to launch collaborations in Greece following recent 'Pharos Summit 2022'

Columbia and Yale universities to launch collaborations in Greece following recent 'Pharos Summit 2022'

The Columbia International Education Center in Athens (of New York’s Columbia University) will start its operation in September 2023, while the postgraduate student exchange program between the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (EKPA) and Yale University will most likely launch within the current academic year, it was reported afresh on Saturday.

Concerning the latter, Greek students who will participate in the joint program will be exempted from paying tuition fees. As part of this new partnership, EKPA postgraduate and doctoral students will be able to take one-semester or one-year courses at Yale’s science, medical and environmental schools, which will count toward their degree.

These announcements were highlighted anew on Saturday, following the ‘Pharos Summit 2022’, which was held recently at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, and which was addressed by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
