The conference presentation explores the transformative role of Transnational Education (TNE) in providing access to quality higher education in Greece, with a specific emphasis on its alignment with United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4). The presentation delves into the intricacies of quality assurance, adhering to the UK Quality Code for Higher Education and including multiple layers of audits and reviews. A significant focus is placed on the establishment of a language policy that incorporates bilingual internal moderators and external examiners experienced in UK Higher Education. The operational framework is carefully crafted to ensure academic rigor while addressing both benefits and challenges. For instance, the model has achieved scalability and robust quality management principles, but also poses operational implications, particularly concerning language use. Importantly, the partnership has witnessed exponential growth since its inception in 2015, from 500 to approximately 3,000 students in 2023. It has succeeded in widening access to students from disadvantaged backgrounds and has had a positive impact on graduate employability.
