JOBS are under threat at the University of Huddersfield.
A shortfall in the recruitment of students for the computing and information technology departments has meant University management is having to make redundancies.
The cuts would mainly affect lecturers and some support staff.
Phil Williams, head of media relations, said the university would not know the extent of the cuts until March as talks were being held with the Higher Education Funding Council.
"We have under recruited primarily in the computing and IT departments and there are pockets elsewhere," he said.
He said the university would look towards redeploying staff, early retirement and voluntary redundancy before any compulsory redundancies.
In January last year the university revealed that 92 posts would be cut - again due to a recruitment shortfall which meant £2.75 million less cash from the Higher Education Funding Council and tuition fees.
But the number of jobs to go was cut to 34 following meetings between management, unions and staff representatives.
"The cuts this year will be by no means on the same scale as those of last year," said Mr Williams.
