The vice-chancellor of one of the UK’s leading private universities has left after just six months in the job.

Craig Mahoney joined the University of Law in February after eight years leading the University of the West of Scotland (UWS), but departed from his new role last month.

The for-profit institution, which is owned by Netherlands-based Global University Systems (GUS), attributed the decision to a “reassessment of [Professor Mahoney’s] priorities”. It has reappointed Andrea Nollent, the University of Law’s leader from 2014 to 2021, as vice-chancellor, following her stint as GUS’ chief academic officer.
