Extra Cash for Science Teaching

Universities in England are to get an extra £75m over three years to boost science departments struggling with declining student numbers.
The extra £25m a year will support courses in chemistry, physics and aspects of engineering. It is hoped the funding - estimated to be worth about £1,000 per student - may stop some departments from closing. Over the last decade 20 physics departments have closed and academics fear a further 10 are under threat.
