"Copenhagen University – the largest research and education institution in
the country – has this week announced that it is cutting 532 jobs of
professors, researchers and administrative staff, due to government
austerity measures.

"The job losses will amount to 7.4% of the total workforce at the
university and will begin by terminating the employment of 209 people next
week. There will also be 255 voluntary redundancies, and 68 positions not
filled. In addition, some 61 jobs will be shortened in hours.

"The university also announced that it will cut the number of PhD places by
10% in future years.
There will also be no new students admitted in 2016 in modern Indian
studies, Indology, Southeast Asian studies, Tibetology, Balkan studies,
Hebrew, Turkish, Indian language and culture, and ancient Greek."
