Maternity Leave

Students who need to take maternity leave should temporarily withdraw from studies. This will ease the pressure for submission of the thesis within the appropriate time frame. Individual funding bodies will have separate arrangements for maternity leave for research students and should be consulted directly for their policies on maternity leave. The Withdrawal from Studies (Temporary or Permanent) Form should be completed and sent to Debbie Smith (Graduate School Office, Level 6, Ninewells Hospital and Medical School).
