QUB cuts jobs and student intake after DEL funding loss

Queen's University Belfast is cutting 236 jobs and 290 student places due to a funding reduction.

The move is in response to an £8m cut in the subsidy received from the Department of Employment and Learning (DEL).

The university's vice-chancellor Patrick Johnston said the cuts had the potential to damage the reputation of Queen's.
