Postgraduate Research Students

Full-time students are expected to devote their efforts to the research project on a full-time basis, defined as an average of 40 hours per week.  This calculation allows for 23 days holiday per year in addition to days when the University is closed.  Students should always discuss their holiday plans with their supervisor and should always seek the approval of their supervisor for short periods of absence from their research study.
