Nearly 90% of QUB students vote against anthropology course closure

Over 2,500 students voted in the referendum


In the referendum yesterday, 89.14% of QUB students have voted against changes to the university which would close courses, cut the number of students at the university, and increase A level entry specifications. The changes were outlined in the university’s Size and Shape Review.

10.86% voted in favour of the changes, which would terminate anthropology and sociology as single honours degrees. The referendum was called amidst anger from students.

Queen’s University Students Union stated working towards said goals now becomes a priority policy of the Students’ Union.
