We publish this information on a voluntary basis in order to provide details of the travel, accommodation and subsistence costs for the Vice-Chancellor Stuart Croft in the course of performing his duties for the University. Details of the total emoluments including salary, pension and benefits in kind for the Vice-Chancellor are published in the University’s financial accounts.

Details of the expenses claimed by lay members of the University Council, who are unremunerated, in the course of their Council and statutory business responsibilities, are also published annually by the University.

For the post of Vice Chancellor and President, the proposed purpose and duration of all overseas trips are approved in advance by the Chair of Council. All expense claims and travel and subsistence costs are checked by an authorised signatory before approval in accordance with the University's financial regulations.
