Greek Community of Melbourne aim to strengthen educational relations with Cyprus University


Professor Andreas Charalambous, of the University of Nicosia, discussed the strengthening of relations between Cyprus and Melbourne universities with the President of the Greek Community of Melbourne, Bill Papastergiadis and Cypriot Community of Melbourne and Victoria president, Stelios Angelodimou.

During the meeting, Mr. Papastergiadis briefed Professor Charalambous on the activities of the Community, in particular its contribution to the establishment of the new headquarters for dispersal at the University of Melbourne.

Among other things, they discussed how to build closer links between the universities of Melbourne and Cyprus.

“We had the pleasure of meeting with Professor Charalambous to discuss how we can develop closer ties between the Universities of Melbourne and Cyprus,” Papastergiadis said, speaking at the meeting.

“We discussed this issue a few weeks ago with the President of the Parliament of Cyprus, Mr Dimoullouris, and we reiterated our proposal at this meeting.

“One of the main issues discussed was the recognition of the University in Australia, and in particular the Medical School. This gave the opportunities for over 80 students from Australia to study medicine in Cyprus.

“…One of the key platforms of the new university headquarters, proposed by the Greek Community of Melbourne, is to promote the relationship between our universities in Australia with Cyprus and Greece.”
