The Graduate School Office will pay reasonable expenses and travelling costs - to the value of first class return rail fare - up to a maximum of £250.
Where expenses are more than £250 then the candidate's School/Department will need to pay the balance.
Where the distance involved requires an overnight stay, we can cover the cost of this - provided that it is within the overall limit of £250.
Examiners needing overnight accommodation should use:
The Belmont Hotel
De Montfort Street
Tel: +44 (0)116 252 9602
If you booking your room yourself then please inform the hotel that you require the University of Leicester rate as this is lower than the standard rate.
If you are using your own car to travel to the viva then we can reimburse you the cost of petrol at the rate of 45p per mile for the first 80 miles and 31p per mile thereafter.
Please complete both of these in full and either hand them to the internal examiner at the viva, or post them to the Graduate School Office.
Please note that we do need a bank details form from you even if you have been an examiner for the University of Leicester in the past. Otherwise, please complete this form in full with details of your bank or building society and your National Insurance number and sign where indicated.
It is not necessary to attach confirmation that you are entitled to be employed in the UK.
Please make sure to indicate your title (Professor, Doctor, etc.) and gender.
Fees and expenses are signed off by the Graduate School Office and we will send all authorised forms to the University's Payroll Office for payment.
