Maternity and Paternity

Maternity/Paternity Guidelines for EMA/Bursary Payments

4 weeks maternity leave is allowed (6 weeks if a caesarean birth) and 2 weeks paternity leave. The student funds office must be notified of this in writing to continue payment throughout this time. Where evidence is not given for an absence the payment will be held.

Please bring in evidence of your pregnancy/partners pregnancy at your earliest convenience to Student Funds. This may include your Blue Pregnancy folder or MAT1 form.
