University of Canterbury axes courses, jobs

Saturday 6 Oct 2012 2:28 p.m.

The earthquakes in Christchurch have left its university facing large bills for insurance and repair work.

This year the University of Canterbury has also had to grapple with a big drop in student numbers, although the Government has maintained its pre-quake funding at least for this year.
