Staff members at the University of Salford could face redundancy due to a fall in student numbers.Up to 170 academics may be affected by the cuts, with around 65 people losing their jobs, the BBC reports.According to the Greater Manchester institution, the number of people enrolling has declined by the equivalent of 400 students.A spokeswoman for the university said the move has come as a “consequence of the government’s core-and-margin policy [and] the unpredictability in the enrolment of students as a result of the new fees regime”.The university announced 218 redundancies in 2011 and has cut 150 jobs over the past few years.It also blamed a failure to reach target revenues for its research and academic enterprise.Staff in Salford are not the only academics in the UK facing redundancy, as it was recently revealed dozens of people at the University of Wales could lose their positions following a restructuring of the organisation.Posted by Ross Strowger
