When Dante Micheaux, the award-winning American poet, rocked up in London last year at the age of 29 to undertake his PhD at UCL, he was shocked to discover how postgraduate and overseas students were treated. He had come from a Masters at New York University, which, like UCL, is a large, well-regarded university in a teeming multicultural city that markets itself as a global institution. He expected to find a lot of similarities. And, indeed, there are similarities. Both universities were founded at about the same time, NYU in 1831 and UCL in 1826. Both have large numbers of Nobel prize-winners as staff or former staff, and both do well in the Shanghai international league table of universities. NYU comes in at number 31 and UCL has a ranking of 21. But what bothered Micheaux was the relative neglect of postgraduates in the London institution.

University lecturers are threatening national strike action over redundancies. They have rejected proposed changes to their pensions and are asking for a 4 per cent pay rise this year. Are such demands from the University and College Union realistic in such austere times for the economy? We would argue they are not, given the dire state of the public finances and the expected shortfall in the Universities Superannuation Scheme pension pot.
