Durham University branded 'a disgrace'

3 posts in this topic

A top university has been criticised by students for spending £1.4m on famous artwork while raking in £9,000 tuition fees and paying staff less than the living wage.

Durham University spent the money while kitting out their new £50m Palatine Centre with works by Picasso and Andy Warhol.

The building, which opened in October last year, now features a collection of work by 20th Century greats and pieces by north-east artists.

why?? Durham is internationally renowned for its Scientific courses.!!

I suspect that the Dean came through the Classics courses (i.e. Useless) and fancied some pointless works of art over buying some original Tesla, Edison, Trevithick, works.

Where is the oversight in this?

Don't kid yourself. Sure the reputation's good but their treatment of us students and general attitude is atrocious.

It's the downside of this 'research led teaching'. In other words, the lecturers are at the top of their field and put their research above anything else.
