I heard about this, due to funding ofcourse. i was just waiting to see what department the university cuts. Apprently places on vet met and med because the training is so expensive, dont think this is happening at st. andrews though.
No not true. Two members of staff left close in succession which made it an easy time to end it rather than reemploying two lecturers. However there are too many staff high up in the university that support geoscience so its not going to get axed.
oh ok then, sorry. That wasnt the reason though, it was a financial based reason. Id rather not keep reposting on this thread as it refreshes it up to the list. Its not good for the department, I dread to know how many applicants they have lost for next year.
