The Times Higher Education Supplement has an article on clearing helplines today and we’re mentioned. A reporter phoned up various university hotlines and as well as asking the usual questions asked a few that were a little out of the ordinary.
We did pretty well, giving full answers to questions like who the vice chancellor is and what the gender balance among students is. Word has it that the vice chancellor himself is pleased with our performance. And incidentally the colleague who was asked about the gender balance figure was me 🙂 .
Note that the article is subscription-only, but well worth a read if you can get in.
