The University of York has agreed a partnership with CITY College, Thessaloniki to operate a new Europe Campus in Greece.
In an email to students, the Vice Chancellor outlined a new partnership with CITY College to offer a range of University of York degree programs at the site in Thessaloniki.
Students will be able to enrol at the new campus from Autumn 2021 with an initial cohort of 700 students.
For students at York, the partnership offers joint research and supervision opportunities and the potential for student work and study abroad placements.
This follows the news that the University of Sheffield and CITY College have begun a phased ending of their partnership up until 2024.
For the past 11 years, CITY College has been known as the International Faculty of the University of Sheffield.
Following this agreement, it will now be known as the University of York Europe Campus.
In the email, Professor Charlie Jeffrey states: “Brexit does not impact our determination to deliver potentially transformative research collaborations and educational opportunities for all.”
A University spokesperson has been contacted for comment.
