Reino Unido: University defends £20,000 hoardings as funding cuts and redundancy fears grow

Cobourg Street

​The University of Plymouth has splashed out around £20,000 on colourful marketing hoardings – despite funding cuts and redundancy fears.

Images advertising the university, pictured, have sprung up on boards fencing off the plot where an £18million marine science headquarters is being built.

The designs boast of the state-of-the-art facilities that will be housed at the new School of Marine Science and Engineering base when it is completed next year.

The university said half the cash for the hoardings came from its shrinking budget, while the other half came from the South West Regional Development Agency.

A university spokesman said the hoardings were in a ‘prime location’ on North Hill.

He said: “The graphics have been designed to engage the public and highlight the opportunities that this exciting facility will offer the region.”
