Big day tomorrow...

We find out tomorrow what cuts the government will be making to university funding. It is a bit of a squeaky bum time here as we already was told to find £400,000 out of the budget. According to a leaked email to the BBC cuts are likely to be as high as £4.2bn (that's right BILLION).

Obviously that will have a massive effect on higher education. The students may have to cover most of the shortfall with raised tuition fees but we are already getting emails about working hours arriving in our inbox's, even before the announcement.

I am sure there will be a meeting in the next few weeks so we will just have to see what happens.

After moving from secondary education where my job was in danger due to BSF and managed services, higher education does not seem so safe now either.
