Today, we had the systems group meeting, these are the once monthly meetings where everybody gets together and basically talks around things and people try to blame other people for their problems.

Today however did break away from the drudgery a bit, we got a presentation from the directory of finance (I think) who told us how HEFCE give us money (or more to the point don’t) this was interesting, because we are a “new” university we have lots of “normal” students, who only get a little bit of money per student while the “proper” universities get loads just because they teach medical subjects.
