Short-sighted shrift

二月 28, 2008

The proposals to cut courses and jobs at Keele University are short sighted and will have a disproportionate effect on students from non-traditional backgrounds. ("Restructuring round-up", 21 February). The courses in industrial relations are unique and offer distance and part-time learning and access to masters degrees, widening participation at a very high level of academic achievement.

We appreciate that demand inevitably changes but this is an attack on social science inquiry. Once a subject is closed it may be difficult to open again, even if the market shifts. Industrial relations is a distinctive area of study at Keele.

We urge the university not to withdraw this opportunity from future students.
