This includes air, rail and road travel. Due to the amount of travel that the Stuart is required to undertake and that he is required to work while he travels, the University permits under the terms of the Vice-Chancellor’s contract business class travel.
Commitments include but are not exclusive to:
• Meetings with partner organisations, promotion of the University in key recruitment markets, alumni engagement events and fundraising, and higher education sector meetings;
• Participation in governmental events overseas – both UK ministerial visits and foreign government invitations;
• Other University-related commitments such as external speaking, board membership or meeting engagements (some of which may be reimbursed by the organisers).
<5 indicates where an overseas trip is up to and including five days’ duration; >5 indicates where a trip is more than five days’ duration.
4. Reimbursable costs
This includes where travel, accommodation or subsistence costs are associated with the VC’s professional commitments not directly associated with the University and these are eligible to be reclaimed by the University. It also includes where the VC has made a personal contribution to the costs of an engagement. Where costs have been paid directly by an external organisation, these are not listed.
