The Higher Education sector in the UK has seen some unprecedented changes in recent years. One of the most striking changes has been the widespread use of casualised contracts in UK universities. In 2012-13, almost 34 per cent of academics worked part-time, nearly 36 per cent had fixed-term contracts, 25 per cent of all full-time contracts were fixed-term, and almost 56 per cent of all part-time contracts were fixed-term (HESA, 2014). A recent Freedom of Information Request by UCU revealed that 75 (53 per cent) of institutions that responded use zero hours contracts for teaching, research and/or academic related staff (UCU, 2013). Jenny Chen and Ana Lopes from UWE have conducted an exploratory study of the impact of casualised contracts in UK universities.
