Medical School PGR Student Holiday Request System

HOLIDAY POLICY

Full-time PGR students are entitled to take up to 30 days as holiday in each academic year, excluding bank holidays and closure days. Part-time are pro-rota. The academic year commences on 1st October, and students will be notified of the dates of the University closure days each year. It is recommended that students take no more than 4 weeks holiday at any one time. Students are expected to provide their supervisors with reasonable advance notice of the dates when they plan to take holiday, which is subject to their supervisors’ approval.

Students commencing registration at times other than the beginning of the academic year are entitled to holidays on a pro rata basis until the commencement of the next academic year.  Holiday cannot be carried over from previous years.

A new online holiday booking system has been developed and is now available for all students to use. Paper forms will no longer be accepted.

You can book your holiday via Holiday Booking System.
