Leading Article: Fresh look needed at London Met
Thursday 08 April 2010
The new vice-chancellor at London Metropolitan University has a tough job. Tidying up the mess left by the false counting of students is only the half of it.
The university was never able to realise the economies that should have come from the merger between North London and London Guildhall to form London Met 10 years ago and Malcolm Gillies as the boss parachuted in on the back last year's crisis has the chance to take a fresh look .
The trade unions must realise that to survive the university needs to be as lean and nimble as possible. It is a shame there is still so much suspicion around. The university performs a vital function, educating disadvantaged people in north London, and students need it to operate at the top of its game.
