About the show
This week NSR News looks at the news that arts, humanities and social sciences university departments will completely lose their teaching grants.
Broadcasting just before the government’s response to Lord Browne’s spending review, Beth Staunton reports from a student protest against Newcastle University Vice Chancellor Chris Brink’s total backing of the plans to dramatically raise tuition fees.
Also on the agenda was a £6 million Newcastle University lead study into the UK’s threatened life-supporting services and the Union move to Park Terrace.
