Students protest against plan to overhaul Greek universities

Greek university students will on Thursday stage a protest against a
controversial plan to
overhaul the country's higher education system that has come under
fire from many
academics and several politicians.

The protest rally will take place outside the Education Ministry in
Athens at 12.30 p.m.

The plan, dubbed Athena, was originally scheduled to be showcased at
Parliament on
Thursday, but the presentation has been postponed for next week.

The scheme foresees four universities shutting down – the University
of Central Greece,
the University of Western Greece, the International Hellenic
University and the University
of Western Macedonia – and the closure of dozens of departments at
universities and
 technical colleges that have little demand.
