It is great to see that those in decision making positions are so well educated to be able to put forward such a well structured and cogent argument. I am completely persuaded to their point of view. Clearly having them in this position of authority is vindicated and do not feel in any way they they may be over paid nor conceited nor self-centered.

Surely genuine refugees fleeing persecution would have no issue attending a UK university if they have the correct qualifications or equivalent 

If they are talking about illegal immigrants I can’t see how they can attend a UK university ?? 

It's a scholarship. It's not a matter of qualifications or ability, but if they presumably meet the acceptance criteria some or all fees will be paid. Indirectly by the taxpayer/other students, unless a donation hs been made to the Uni for this purpose.

Impoverished/disadvantaged UK students need not apply.

Back in the day Reading was a real third rank institution. Given that standard of argument and public communications it’s safe to say not much has changed.

I think you may find it has slipped somewhat. 

My guess is that universities such as this will not be around in a few years

...or did someone just decide to do it by themselves?

 

 Presumably some student reps on the committee. There was a similar thing a few moths ago with some university announcing some banning or boycotting something or other, that got reversed a few days later.

you know, i dont really read many twitter roll outs, but i had a read of that one. Man its bloody annoying, its so ok, yar and so on, all the way down, had to abandon it after a few pages, just grated on my nerves. Its like a few people bigging each other up about how great they all are, gets on my wick. A proper clique of clarts.

The great thing about twitter is seeing the mask of professionalism let slip by an organisation

Time and time again it can be a reassuring sanity check if you have a momentary doubt about your prior conculsion that's it's time to leave an employer, or you want a real insight into the unprofessionalism of a colleague.

Regardless of whether the scholarships are a good idea or not..  that tweet is monumentally arrogant.

No public servant should treat the general public who pay their salary with that kind of contempt. 

Universities don't get public money directly - they need to encourage students to borrow £50,000 and go to that Uni rather than another one...

"Jog on" alright, Reading is a dump.  Only looks a bit better than total shite 'cause it's next to Slough. 

And in my opinion, the uni has always been a bit shite, presumably just letting you know no change there.  Actually done everyone a favour.  No a place to dump £50k.

Maybe they're offering the scholarships to cover vacancies in gender studies.
