Big pay rise for university boss; NEWS IN BRIEF.

CARDIFF University has been asked to justify spending huge sums of money on senior management after it emerged its vice-chancellor received a pay rise last year.

In its annual survey of vice-chancellors' remuneration, the Times Higher Education magazine lists Dr David Grant, formerly of Cardiff University, as Wales' highest earner.

Dr Grant took home PS264,000, excluding pension contributions made by the university, before his retirement last August - a rise of 7.32% on 2010-11.

Margaret Phelan, Wales official for the University and College Union (UCU), said the salary was an "embarrassment" to the sector.

John Jeans, chairman of Cardiff University Council, said Dr Grant's salary was "proportionate with the responsibilities of the role of vice-chancellor of a university with around 6,000 staff".
