REPRESENTATIVES of the Spanish Ministry of Education are to visit Dundee University tomorrow to sign a new collaboration agreement to strengthen existing links between the institution and Spain.
Liborio López García, the Spanish Counsellor of Education in London, and Joaquín Moreno Artesero, an Edinburgh-based Education Adviser to Spain, will meet Professor David Finkelstein, Dean of the School of Humanities, to sign the new agreement.
A university spokesman explained: “The agreement will see the Ministry promote the university’s programmes in Spain and throughout the UK, as well as supporting public engagement activities and existing Spanish language classes, workshops and other services.
“It is hoped that the relationship will see an increasing number of exceptional Spanish students choosing to study in Dundee, while also promoting the range of postgraduate, exchange and career opportunities in Spain to Dundee students.”
Mayra Crowe, Spanish coordinator in the School of Humanities, said: “The Spanish Ministry of Education have chosen to partner with Dundee for the quality of work we do. This agreement will help us to reach our target public for distance learning language courses by benefiting from the invaluable profile the Consejería (Ministry) will give us.
“We were privileged to host the Spanish Workshops in Scotland last year, and the event was very well attended. This event, along with our other programmes, is aligned to promote current Scottish Government language policies.”
