Postgraduate Research Students

If you are a Postgraduate Research student, then you must be studying at Aberystwyth University and be based at Aberystwyth for 44 weeks per academic year. Any vacation must be taken when appropriate in line with your research and any teaching events. Any vacation has to be authorised by your supervisor and your supervisor is requested to confirm this by e-mail while stating that any such authorised absence is not likely to impact on your submission date. Your supervisor will also need to inform the relevant Departmental Compliance Contact of such authorised absence and they will forward the request to the Compliance Office for their approval. You are only allowed to work part-time during term time provided that this is stated on your visa. You should not assume that you can work full-time during summer time or any other time of the year that there are no teaching activities.
