THE University of Ballarat will cut up to 60 of its TAFE courses following the funding cuts announced in the recent state budget.
University of Ballarat Vice-Chancellor David Battersby said they were looking at a 40 per cent decline in funding.
"The projected TAFE funding cuts to UB will be approximately $20 million," Professor Battersby said.
"With such a massive funding cut, there are few options for UB...a number of UB's VET programs become financially unviable."
"The university...will close between 50-60 VET programs."
