Arts and language subjects miss out on funding

Dramatic changes to the UK's academic landscape over the past seven years mean the country's expertise in languages is danger of being lost.

Data published today shows research into some European languages has dropped as universities have shifted their focus to sports science and media studies in response to student demand. And the government's determination to protect funding for science means less money to go round for higher numbers of academics in arts and humanities.
