New Boost to Anglo-German Relations
22 February 2012 Bracknell, United Kingdom [Newbold] Detailed discussions over the last six months with our state-recognised Seventh-day Adventist university in Germany have resulted in Newbold College being granted permission to offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees which will be conferred by the Theologische Hochschule Friedensau. This is excellent news and will enable the College to teach towards German university degrees as well as degrees through a UK university. On Friday 17 February Dr John Baildam (Deputy Principal) received confirmation from Dr Friedbert Ninow (Principal at Friedensau) that earlier that day the German education authorities in Magdeburg had cleared the way for Friedensau to enter into an academic partnership with Newbold College.
Dr Ninow was delighted to announce that the authorities had given an ‘absolute yes’ to our proposal. Newbold College Principal Dr Philip Brown, commenting on the news while out of the country, pronounced himself ‘delighted to learn that students of Theology at Newbold College will have the choice between German or British university qualifications’. Dr Baildam is ‘excited to know that much hard work at both institutions has resulted in a more formal relationship between them. The arrangement will be an outstanding one for our students, whether visa nationals or from within the European Economic Area. We very much look forward to this new era in Newbold College's history.’ [tedNEWS]
