True cost of Crichton Campus to be revealed

Wednesday 14 February 2007 4.30 pm

BBC Radio Scotland’s Drive Time news have announced that Glasgow University Court have agreed today that no new students will be admitted to their Crichton University Campus.

Once the present cohort of students have completed their studies, Glasgow University will cease to have a presence on the Crichton University Campus.

Question : by how much will the Scottish Funding Council now cut the £147 million per year they give to Glasgow University?

This figure (unlike Glasgow University’s figures) will be in the public domain.

Once released, it will be possible to finally establish who has been telling the truth - the Scottish Funding Council or Glasgow University.

A low figure for the funding cut will support Glasgow University’s case : that their Crichton activities have been underfunded.

A higher figure for the cut will confirm the Scottish Funding Council’s case : that Glasgow University have been allocated sufficient funds, but have chosen not to deploy them to support their Crichton activities.
