Victoria University is facing financial challenges and has announced plans to cut up to 260 positions, including academic and general staff, due to a drop in enrolments. The university has forecasted a deficit of $33 million this year, primarily caused by a 12% decline in enrolment. The institution is taking steps to increase enrolment rates and explore cost-saving measures, while also reviewing the sustainability of academic programs.
