"Release date: November 20, 2006
The University of Reading Council decided this evening (November 20 2006) to close the University’s Department of Physics in 2010. Members voted 18 for the closure, five against, with one abstention.
The welfare and teaching of existing physics students will be a priority until the Department closes.
More information about the background to the proposal can be found on the
Vice-Chancellor's Communications Page. We regret that no interviews are being offered at this time."
Luckily they will allow me to finish my degree before they close it.
