Standstill funding is not enough, says UCU Scotland

7 February 2020

Commenting on the Scottish Budget for 2020-21 which was set out yesterday, UCU Scotland official, Mary Senior said: 'Scottish universities will be relieved that this year's budget does not represent another real-terms cut, but standstill funding is not enough to address the financial challenges facing universities or increase confidence in the face of Brexit uncertainty.

'If we want world class universities that continue to provide excellent teaching and research - and ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed - we need real investment.  It is time for the Scottish Government to invest properly in the people that deliver the teaching, research, student support and knowledge exchange for which our universities are renowned.'
