I have received the below from the University of Westminster.
I'm not quite sure of the best way to handle email petitions, but I think we could either circulate a hard copy at our next meeting for you to sign if you wish, or if you prefer, you might like to email Manuela directly.
SAVE GERMAN AND RUSSIAN DEGREES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WESTMINSTER
"We, the undersigned, urge the Vice Chancellor's Executive Group at the
University of Westminster to reconsider the decision to close
undergraduate German and Russian provision. We believe that this is a
short-sighted response that both threatens the entire Department of
Modern Languages and will leave the university unable to respond
strategically to the inevitable fluctuations in demand for individual
languages. Modern Languages staff have worked very hard to develop a
new, flexible BA programme in response to management concerns.
We urge VCEG to give this new programme a chance to work."
