"Boom times look to be over for universities as managers plan thousands of job losses to respond to looming public spending cuts and the aftermath of recession. Leeds University is planning "significant" job losses as part of efforts to save around £35m a year from 2010. Union estimates are that up to 700 jobs could go. One hundred posts have already gone at Gloucestershire University, and another 30 are to follow, while the University of Stirling has lost 130, and the London College of Communications (LCC) is closing 16 of the 19 courses offered in a single school, making 37 compulsory redundancies.
