The article reports on the efforts of higher education (HE) employers in England to find ways to reduce job loss as a result of funding cuts from the government. The government is cutting 1.6 percent of funding for universities in the country for 2010-2011, which reduces the funds to only 4.7 billion British pounds. Russell Brockett, personnel director at the University of Greenwich, recommends universities to attract more international students which could help increase their revenue and save the jobs of several teachers.
