Reclaim Higher Education launch

9 May 2024

Reclaim HE launch event: 18:00-19:30, Thursday 9 May, online

The UK higher education sector is facing unprecedented threats and attacks. Job cuts and redundancies at HE institutions are increasing at an alarming rate. Students are graduating with a lifetime of debt, spending on staff is at record lows, workload and job insecurity is sky high, painful cuts to arts and humanities funding continue, and financial inequality across the sector is growing as institutions are forced to battle for income.

UCU believes it is time to reclaim higher education for the interests of staff and students. We are calling for radical reform to ensure that a fair funding model is introduced and that professional autonomy and respect for all staff becomes the norm.
