Higher Ed Cuts in GOP Budget

The proposal, by Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the House Budget Committee chairman, seeks to bring the federal budget into balance by 2024 and would cut spending by $5 trillion over the next decade.

Budget 2014: £200 million for science as postgraduate options considered

'Massive' budget hole predicted as RAB charge rises

Universities to get near 6 per cent cut to ‘most teaching budgets’

By . Teaching grants for universities in England are to fall by more than the £45 million announced last month, the country’s funding council has said. In a letter to institutions from Madeleine Atkins, Higher Education Funding Council for England chief executive, it has been revealed that most teaching budgets will drop by 5.85 per cent in 2014-15.
This is a higher cut than previously expected when the higher education budget was unveiled in the government’s annual grant letter, which was released last month. More...

The 2015 Budget, Real and Illusory

HomeBy Michael Stratford. President Obama on Tuesday sent Congress a budget request that would keep most student aid and basic research programs level-funded; the 2015 plan also included several ambitious new higher education proposals. But the new proposals stand little chance of passing a gridlocked Congress that is gearing up for the midterm elections this fall. Read more...

L'Etat reprend la main sur le budget de l'université de Versailles - Saint-Quentin

 Par Benoît Floc'h. L’université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (UVSQ) s’enlise dans les problèmes financiers. Vendredi 14 février, la présidence de l’université n’a pu, comme cela était attendu, présenter au conseil d’administration de l’établissement un budget en équilibre. C’est donc au recteur que revient désormais la tâche d’établir, sous quinze jours, un budget exécutoire.
Il manque toujours à l’UVSQ, devenue le symbole des difficultés budgétaires des universités, 5,2 millions d’euros pour boucler son budget 2014. Suite...

English university budgets slashed, heads 'rebuked' over pay

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy David Jobbins. Universities and other higher education institutions in England face further heavy cuts in direct support from the UK government – with the cuts continuing after the next general election, due in May 2015. And the government says it is concerned at the upward drift of salaries for vice-chancellors and other top posts and has urged 'restraint'. The academics’ trade union described the government's intervention as a “rebuke” for vice-chancellors. More...

Relief greets news of 'better than expected' university budget

http://static.guim.co.uk/static/c55907932af8ee96c21b7d89a9ebeedb4602fbbf/common/images/logos/the-guardian/news.gifBy . Universities warn that while access and high-cost courses have been made a priority, they are not completely protected. Universities are bracing themselves for significant cuts to teaching budgets totalling around £160m next year, while welcoming efforts to shield poorer students and high-cost courses from the worst of the cutbacks. The delayed announcement of the cash available for higher education in 2014-15 and beyond represents a less bleak picture than many in the sector had feared, amid rumours last month of £200m cuts including the axing of the Student Opportunity Allocation, a fund supporting widening participation.
