Salary Advances

UCL provides the facility to Contract Research Staff of an advance of one month's net salary repayable over 6 months or during the period of employment if this is less than 6 months, in order to assist with the costs associated with taking up a new appointment. This must be requested within the first month of employment. Other schemes, administered by the Finance Division, include assistance with relocation expenses.
