Third level staff cut by 2,246 since 2008

The Irish Independent has reported devastating third level job cuts of 2,246 since 2008.

Education Editor Katherine Donnelly points out that the 12pc drop, which amounts to more than the entire staff of UCD, ‘comes in the face of soaring demand for a college place, with a 15pc rise in enrolments over the same period, which translates as a 27pc reduction in the staff-student ratio in six years.’
