Doctor of Philosophy Websurf is weird. It wants you to enter course codes, which you don't do, and it can't quite fathom that it's not SAAS OR you who pays the fees.
Also, restructure has claimed at least one prominent staff member. Professor, holder of well-known chair, FRSE, FBA, at Glasgow for sixteen years, has upped sticks and left for another Russell Group university because he isn't happy with how the place is being run. Shame, he was one of the best we had.
I'm not sure what to make of this restructure. I mean, the academics all hate it, but I suppose they would- many have been there 15+ years and they aren't exactly fans of change- if they were ambitious and forward thinking they might be doing something that wasn't being an academic. Muscatelli has a good track record as dean, VP, and principal of Heriot Watt too, and he saw Edinburgh mess their restructure up, so he should know what he's doing. That being said, all these people who are against it are smart folk- can so many people be wrong? The camp isn't happy, that's for sure. And if our student satisfaction drops and people decide not to come to Glasgow- we could find ourselves far from where we want to be or think we should be. That being said, Edinburgh have messed things up pretty badly and have horrendous student satisfaction, and it doesn't seem to be stopping them. Interesting times ahead.
