As a result of the new crown virus pandemic, schools will face a growing funding gap over the next three years, so temporary work will be cut next semester, the University of Western Sydney (WSU) said.

At present, the temporary workload of several universities in the new state is decreasing, causing concern. With the exception of the University of Sydney (Sydney University), which cut art courses by 30 per cent, one third of casual workers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) also reported unemployment.

A serious shortage of money! Under the outbreak, Sydney's universities were really sad

Glouver (Barney Glover), vice president of the University of Western Sydney, told employees via video link on Thursday ," It`s not a one-time blow, and the challenge in 2021(and 2022) is greater than in 2020. "

The University noted that the budget gap for 2020 was $90 million and could rise to $120 million to $130 million by 2021 and 2022, as travel restrictions remained and expected growth could not be achieved.

Professor Glover says the University of West Sydney will compensate for the loss by increasing the number of students in the country and reducing spending, including cutting the temporary budget in the second semester, while courses are mainly taught online.

A six-month new online course, created by the federal government higher education aid program, will be given priority to temporary workers, but professor glover says the program is "far from enough for the industry ".

"We believe that the federal government has not done enough to support foreign students ," he said, noting that the University of Western Sydney was considering lowering tuition fees for foreign students.

Professor Glover continued that the University of Sydney and the University of New South Wales were in a more difficult position, facing budget gaps of $470 million and $600 million respectively this year.

Willings (Paul Wellings), vice president of the University of Woolengun (University of Wollongong), also revealed Thursday that the funding gap restrictions was $90 million, which he said would "have a compound effect in the coming years ".

The executive leadership of the University of Wulungun will cut salaries by 20 per cent within 12 months and freeze-essential external recruitment.

As incomes plummeted as a result of the epidemic, the University of Sydney School of Arts and Social Sciences was told to cut nearly a third of its courses next semester to reduce the cost of temporary workers.

Scholars are asked to choose courses that are not important to academic degree, even if students have enrolled in them.

In an e-mail, a teacher at the College was informed of the need to focus resources on core courses to focus on the quality of the courses still being offered and to save money "in order to mitigate the impact of the decline in the number of teaching staff by 2021".
