The University of Plymouth says it is consulting on staff redundancies, after a decline in the number of students enrolled in its main campus.

A spokesman for the university told Research Fortnight that the redundancies could affect up to two per cent of the university’s total workforce, which is currently over 2,900 staff. The consultation “involves both professional services and some academic areas”.

Figures provided by the university show that the number of students registered to study at the university main campus have fallen from 22,650 in 2012-13 to 21,203 in 2016-17, a decrease of 1,447.
