UCL’s sabbatical leave policy has been revamped to provide greater clarity on policy, process and approvals.
Sabbatical leave applies to all academic staff, in the grades of Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader and Professor. It is a form of paid leave that is free from all teaching and administrative duties, allowing a member of staff to undertake research or other appropriate study related to their academic or professional field.
Sabbatical leave is provided to assist academic staff to maintain the high calibre of research, scholarship, teaching and innovation for which UCL is renowned.
In addition to the qualification period (below), research-active academics returning from maternity, adoption, extended carer's, or long term sickness leave are entitled to one term of sabbatical leave without teaching commitments. This leave will enable staff to re-establish their research activity more quickly.
Sabbatical leave may be granted at the discretion of the relevant Head of Department, Dean, Vice-Provost or Provost for a period of one term after three years’ qualifying service with UCL.
