Warwick in Asia

Didn't see this mentioned on the blogs:


Warwick in Asia discussed in the Independent. Raised a few issues I hadn't realised about the project, notably who would want to teach or study there.

It also seems the University is set to approve the plan with no clear commitment from the Singapore government about how much money they will receive.

Is it not possible that the University has no idea how much it will cost the University of Warwick, and that it could potentially be paying for 50% + of the project?

Also, another key point. I see that 'concerns over human rights and academic freedom must be addressed' has been replaced as a cause of concern with:

Understanding of the compromises Warwick staff and students would face on issues of academic freedom and freedom of speech

Isn't this a bit of an about-turn on the part of those looking into the feasibility of the project?
