My niece faces having her university course scrapped due to cuts
My niece faces the nightmare scenario of having her uni course scrapped due to cuts. Liverpool Hope University face massive cuts in funding in the next academic year. Even if her course survives (In her 2nd year of 4 year primary teaching degree), they are going to slash the course staff by nearly 50%, and apparently the chancellor (or dean, one of the ‘big wigs’), wants to make the uni more ‘academically minded’ like Oxford! Initial Teacher Training is rumoured for the chop. So she could go back in September and find there is no course for her!
