Leave of Absence
The University has provision for academic members of staff to request leave of absence as follows:
- Heads of Department are authorised to approve leave of absence for up to five working days during term time, and up to ten working days during vacation periods.
- Save for the taking of annual leave, for absences which are longer than these periods, applications must be made through the Head of Department to the Chair of the Staffing Policy Committee, who may authorise absences of up to 28 calendar days. Requests for longer periods of absence must be made to the Staff Management Group.
Applications for leave of absence should be made on the appropriate form and forwarded in line with the above guidance.
