Its my first time on the forum, but have read quite a few of your posts, and am now far more clued up - you're all great!
Right, I am a University Lecturer in the UK about to be made redundant. You may or may not be aware that UK unis have just had 80% of their budgets cut, so things are looking grim. I love my career and have received recognition for my teaching and research, so would like to continue in an environment where unis are not facing problems to the extent they are at home, and am considering Australia.
For info, I am 29, single, no kids, British National, native english speaker. I have a BA, MA and PhD (Politics / International Relations / Urban Studies), four years teaching experience at University level, and one year teaching English as a Foreign Language in Bosnia.
Does anyone have any experience of working within universities in Australia, or have knowledge of the Higher Education sector? Any advice regarding the situation would be very gratefully received!
