The article reports on the funding problems being faced by the Department of Chemistry of the University of Sussex in Brighton, England. University of Sussex's head of chemistry, Gerry Lawless, reveals the plan of the university to scrap the chemistry programme that had been a disaster and seriously flawed. The university takes 20-25 chemistry students each year and Lawless says that size, rather than cost or quality was behind plans to scrap the course.
