Objection to Proposed Funding Cuts in Higher Education Courses

The Sussex Archaeological Society has today strongly objected to the proposed 50% cut in government funding for higher education courses in the performing and creative arts, media studies and archaeology. Participating in the consultation currently being undertaken by the Office for Students on the proposed changes, Andrew Edwards, CEO of the Society said ” It is absolutely vital that we inform the Government of the long term damage these cuts will
have on not only the future of archaeology in this country, but also the wider tourism and heritage sectors. Instead of further cuts, we’d like to see Brighton University grow their archaeology offer and for Sussex University to reverse the 2012 closure of their programme. I strongly encourage my colleagues from partner organisations across Sussex to
engage in this consultation, which closes on May 6th”
