Courses gone at Uni Newcastle

Back in September the university announced it would cut courses and subjects to align what it teaches to student demand – which has now happened

 DVC A Mark Hoffman announces eight bachelor degrees/joint degrees and 14 postgrad programmes will be taught-out, plus 529 courses will be dropped.

It is all as expected but in September the university mentioned there would be “workforce planning, recognising that a reduction in overall course load will result in less staff required to deliver it,” (CMM September 28).

There was no word yesterday on any jobs to go.
