The Irish Academy of Public Relations announced today (June 9, 2014) that it has entered into a formal agreement with the International E-Learning Academy in Athens. From September this year, the Irish Academy’s Diploma in Public Relations will be taught through Greek to online students who are based in Greece and Cyprus.

June 9, 2014 (FPRC) -- ‘Our association with the International E-Learning Academy greatly increases our education footprint in Europe, and adds another language to the five existing languages in which you can study our Public Relations course. We’re very excited with this new development. It gives us a presence on the Aegean Sea which we have not had before. Dr. Karathanos is highly regarded for his academic and professional expertise. We are delighted to be working with him and look forward to welcoming our first Greek and Cypriot graduates by the end of 2015’, said Ellen Gunning, Director of the Irish Academy of Public Relations.

Dr. George Karathanos is the Managing Director of the International E-Learning Academy. He has been a lecturer in Public Relations for many years at the National and Kapodistrian University in Athens. He founded the academy to offer students across Greece and Cyprus the opportunity to study by distance learning.

After today’s announcement he commented, ‘I am very pleased that we have been able to come together to specially develop this programme of study in Greek for our Academy’s students. It is wonderful that they will be able to study towards a qualification from such an internationally renowned education provider as the Irish Academy of Public Relations. I look forward to the two academies working together to develop more programmes in the future’.
