Sabbatical Leave upon return from Maternity Leave

 In addition to the provisions of this policy, UCL's Equalities and Diversity Strategy provides for one term of sabbatical leave without teaching commitments for research active academics returning from maternity, adoption, extended carer's, or long term sickness leave. This leave will enable staff to more quickly re-establish their research activity. Academics interested in this term should request this in writing to their Head of Department – there is an optional sabbatical form below. Requests should be made as early as possible but no later than four weeks of their return from leave.
