MATURE Huddersfield students are fuming after hearing their adult learning centre may be closed.
The School of Continuing Education, part of the University of Leeds, is set to close despite protest from staff and students.
Barbara Lockwood, a student from Huddersfield, said: "The school has been running for about 55 years. It has outposts in Wakefield and Halifax so this closure will affect the whole region."
The school was awarded top marks at its last teaching audit. Many believe plans to close it are due to a lack of money.
The School has been under continual assessment for the past two years.
Hannah Love, press officer at the University of Leeds, said: "The review has identified serious concerns about the academic cohesion of the School's activities and has also highlighted that the School's financial situation is more serious than originally thought."
Despite problems facing the learning centre the University hopes to include students in whatever decisions they make.
