Universities 'Set to Lose Teaching Funding in Cuts'


Byline: Anna Davis Education Correspondent

AS MANY as 10 London universities will lose all their funding for teaching under proposed cuts to higher education, the National Union of Students warned today.

The London School of Economics, Goldsmiths College and the Royal Academy of Music are among those that will lose 100 per cent of their teaching funding, the union said.

The warning comes as 20,000 students prepare to march through London tomorrow in protest against the planned cuts to university budgets and increase in tuition fees.

Sally Hunt, general secretary of the University and College Union, called on all students to take the day off from lectures to join the march, which is being jointly organised by the NUS.

She said: "I have written to the vicechancellors and principals of all colleges and universities asking them to allow staff to release students for the march. We want them to reschedule lectures so students can come."

The NUS today said universities will be "brutalised" by disproportionate cuts. Chancellor George Osborne announced in his spending review that the teaching budget for universities will be cut from [pounds sterling]7.1billion to [pounds sterling]4.2billion by 2014.
