main content

The University's annual leave year is 1 October to 30 September inclusive. Annual leave entitlements are as follows:

  • Grades 1-5: 27 days per year
  • Grades 6 and above: 31 days per year

Annual leave entitlement is taken by agreement with the line managers/Head of Department/School/Director and arrangements for taking and recording annual leave are determined at departmental level. For staff members working part-time, and for incomplete leave years, annual leave will be calculated on a pro-rata basis using the guidance included in the Annual Leave and Public Holiday Statement and the appropriate Annual Leave Calculator. There is also Worked Examples available.
