* UCL introduced the standard working week of 36.5 hours as a result of implementing the Pay Framework Agreement in May 2006. Specific groups of staff in post at the time had the option to retain their original hours of work and annual leave. Staff who rejected the new terms and conditions on offer as a result of the Pay Framework Agreement have retained their original terms and conditions. Details are available from the Human Resources Division.
