Attendance and Taking Leave

UCL Staff Holiday

Research students (MPhil/PhD) do not have standard term dates. They are required to be in continuous attendance, apart from periods of leave to be taken in line with UCL staff holiday entitlements.

Tier 4 Visa Holders

For students who are Tier 4 visa holders, this means that you will continue to be restricted to term-time levels of permissible hours of work, paid or unpaid.  More information on working during studies can be found on the Immigration and Visas website:
