London Met Funding Blunder

London_Met_28Jan09.jpg Up to 500 jobs are at risk and courses could be cut at London Metropolitan University. The university has been underestimating the number of students who drop out to such an extent that it's had £38m in funding it wasn't entitled to since 2005. Now HEFCE wants it back, and has also slashed London Met's budget by £15m. Vice-chancellor Brian Roper has already talked of “rationalisation of academic provision” (we suppose this means making lecturers redundant). Staff and students are holding a protest in Holloway Road this afternoon. (Image / edwardwilliamosborn)
