Uni­ver­sity plea.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The rec­tors of six of Greece’s big­gest uni­ver­si­ties yes­ter­day sent a let­ter to the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry re­quest­ing that the num­ber of new stu­dents en­rolled at their in­sti­tu­tions be re­duced. The Uni­ver­sity of Pa­tra and Athens Uni­ver­sity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness both de­manded re­duc­tions of 50 per­cent, the Athens Tech­ni­cal Col­lege asked that stu­dent num­bers be cut 42 per­cent and the uni­ver­si­ties of Pi­raeus and Thes­sa­loniki and the Na­tional Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­sity of Athens drops of be­tween 30 and 36 per­cent. They said the re­duc­tion is the only way to en­sure stan­dards amid cuts to budgets and staff re­duc­tions.
