Pros

Lots of money available for travelling to conferences. (I was never denied funding for this.) Open atmosphere, interesting people, pleasant and centrally-located campus.

Cons

Disappointing support of the senate for the universal nature of universities, namely the proposed closing of certain academic departments in 2008/9 due to their lack of research funding income.

Lack of career support for PhD/RA researchers (but this is an issue common to most universities).

Advice to Management

Within any organisation there are profitable and unprofitable departments, and the former have to support the latter or else the whole organisation is threatened.

Some "career gap funding" for PhD/RA researchers, funded by the university, would keep talented researchers at the university while applying for grants and continuing to contribute to the academic standing of the university.

    Pros

    Student body at Masters degree level within School of Business is made up of intellectual individuals with a strong desire to learn and succeed.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay. 8 week courses (modules) for $1,900 less the fee for international monetary transfers ($15). Although courses contain no more than 15 students, faculty performance expectations are far too rigorous and unreasonably time consuming. For faculty holding a PhD to ear $15 per student per week, the UoL is asking far too much for far too little compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Pay faculty more, set reasonable expectations for students, and set grading standards, and change the audit process to allow for academic freedom, or just hire robots.
