    My school is forced to cut off a huge part of the course (due to lack of money), many professors are living the school (or the country). But who cares.. Those who have money will find a place somewhere in a European university. Or they can wait for the Chinese to invest in education. This video didn’t really help me. Greetings from dying Greece
