Mediterranean College, Greece
In 2005 the School of Social Sciences & Law established links with Mediterranean College in Greece. The college has campuses in Greece’s two largest cities - Athens and Thessaloniki. Mediterranean College now offers Teesside University courses from the School of Social Sciences & Law in:
- BSc (Hons) Counselling and Psychological Sciences
- BSc (Hons) Early Childhood Studies
- MSc Psychological Sciences and Counselling
St.Xavier’s College, India
The School has recently been awarded a UK India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) grant to establish a joint MSc Global Development and Social Research with St. Xavier’s College in Mumbai. The programme will be jointly delivered with students studying in both India and England.
Rwandan Police links
Another development is the recently established link with Rwandan Police. Building on the police training and education delivered with Cleveland Police and West Mercia Police, our Law and Policing Subject Group will be working with the Rwandan Police to deliver degree-level initial police training. This exciting new development shows the School’s commitment to enhancing policing practice through education and training.
The School has a number of Erasmus and Socrates links throughout Europe. We are interested to discuss staff or student visits or exchanges to the University. Unfortunately placements in health and social care settings are unlikely to be available.
