Abstract

This chapter explores the impact of TNE in Greece with particular reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4. The context of the research is a TNE collaborative partnership case study which involves Queen Margaret University in Scotland and Metropolitan College in Greece. A qualitative approach is used to gather and analyse primary evidence from TNE students and graduates. The findings suggest that TNE has had a positive impact in enabling access to good quality higher education in Greece in three respects: (1) affordability; (2) access to courses not available in the domestic HE system; and (3) the use of the host country language in delivery and assessment. This case study suggests that TNE promotes access to good quality higher education and creates a number of benefits for direct participants and wider stakeholder groups with direct reference to UN SDG4.
