Hundreds of university staff that ‘locked up’ students during coronavirus crisis still bagging £100k pay-cheques

HUNDREDS of staff at Universities that have ‘locked up’ students during the covid crisis are taking home huge £100k pay-cheques.

Stats show that 282 staff at Manchester University earn over £100k, while 86 rake in more than £150k at the campus where last week students tore down walls erected to stop them from mingling between halls of residence.

At Manchester Met Uni, where earlier this year students with the virus were locked into the halls, 51 staff members earn over £100k.

Over 4,000 top Uni staff earn over £100k, while Vice Chancellors demand a £2 billion government bailout this spring as they encouraged students to return to class before moving all their teaching online.

Overall, an average of 4,112 staff at British universities taking home over £100,000 each year between 2019 and 2020, an increase of 14 per cent from the previous year.

Meanwhile students are being saddled with debts of up to £9,000 a year for a substandard educational experience.

Scott Simmonds, researcher at the TaxPayers’ Alliance and author of the paper, said: “These rankings reveal the thousands of university bosses taking home very plush pay packets despite begging for a covid bailout.

“Taxpayers and students will be left with more than a degree of uncertainty over whether this is money well spent – especially when students are paying a premium to be locked up in halls with no face-to-face teaching.

“Instead of blaming covid, uni bosses need to get these steep salaries under control and focus on providing students with the very best higher education they can during the pandemic.”

The London School of Economics had the most high earners, where 306 staff received over £100,000 in total remuneration, 109 of which received over £150,000.
