Sabbatical Leave and Leave of Absence

The University recognises that you may wish to take sabbatical leave so that you are free to pursue further research that contributes to your School’s Research Strategy and its submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF).  Sabbatical leave can be granted with or without pay, depending on eligibility.  The length of sabbatical leave is also flexible. 

You also may be eligible to apply for leave of absence in order to work in other institutions in an advisory or consultation role.
