Keep current students and staff at Holborn College

I wanted to start this petition as students and staff of Holborn College will be effected by the outcome of the owner. Apparently the owner wants to stop Law and other course Degrees and make 60+ staff redundant.

All students who are currently studying law or other business subjects at Holborn college who are partnership with Kaplan Financial have to face moving to another university and that's an IF! Some students may not have the opportunity meaning waiting another academic year to apply. Clearing will be a battle if students want to change as applications at UCAS expired Jan 2015. Year 1's and 2's won't be able to apply to university's as most won't accept after year 1. I dont see how it is fair to disrupt someone's learning. We all had the pleasure of getting to know such amazing staff/lecturers.

The study structure was beneficial as they also did online lectures which the new university LCA campus of Anglia Ruskin do not have and confirmed with us all. Meaning I will no longer be able to have the opportunity to review each again for assessments etc. Also the new university have more students and bigger class rooms which will effect me and other students from getting that one to one tuition. One of the many reasons why I chose to study at Holborn. 

Holborn college staff have supported me like no other institute has. It was a family that actually cared for the students. The university even helped their students with travel bursary etc. LCA for Anglia Ruskin university will Not even hire staff from Holborn college.

I feel this is very upseting and disruptive. Also feel such regret for all the staff having to be made redundant and their livelihood taken away. There has to be some sort of negotiation. At least stop the course for new oncoming students and only keep the current students til the last year. If you sign this petition it would mean a change of mind. Future for students and future for the staff. At least enable them to have their livelihood for another couple years til they find a new job. We were notified on 23rd April 2015. It only gives us students and staff 4 months.
