Universities collaborating to save language courses

From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 12 October 2023

In the face of huge budget deficits, Victoria and Otago Universities are working together to save their language courses.

It's a potential solution for languages that were on track to be disestablished at the end of this year, and can now continue through a collaborative teaching model.

Professor Nic Smith is the Vice-Chancellor at Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington, and he joins Jesse today.
