Taking action in higher education

UCU response to chancellor's statements

UCU today welcomed the support education, science and research received from the chancellor. However, the union warned that unless the government commits itself to at least matching the spending on further and higher education that competitor countries enjoy then the UK risks being left behind.

UCU general secretary, Sally Hunt, said: 'It is of course encouraging that the chancellor set out his support for education in his statement today. However, we need clear commitments from government for greater public investment in post-school education. All politicians tell us that education is a priority but rhetoric alone cannot support our universities and colleges.'
