Video: Students protest over 120 Health School job cuts in masks of university bosses

STUDENTS protested in white coats and masks of university bosses to campaign against the cutting of up to 120 academic staff, outside a meeting of the College Council at Waterloo campus this afternoon.

KingsTV produced a short news package on the demonstration. The video was filmed and edited by Giedrė Balsevičiūtė.

    The current levels of staff are clearly unsustainable or else kings would not be taken this action. It would be interesting to see a poll of students who would rather see more investment in facilities and campus infrastructure over staff and academics who may come into contact with relatively few students. I personally have come across lecutres and tutors who I feel are substandard in the role in which they are being used and would be more than happy to see their names on the list of redundancies
