Scholarships Fund - unlocking the potential of talented young people from any background £1884
Student Hardship Fund - providing short-term emergency support £1858
Total:  £4228

2017 Year of History, Heritage and Archeology - ideas?

The University is planning for our involvement in the 2017 Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology with an opportunity to bid for funding from EventScotland (deadline 29 July). If you have practical ideas about how we could get involved, please contact Ailie Ferrari:

Changes to staff expenses claims

From Monday 1 August all claims for business expenses must be submitted through the staff portal - Core HR.

Any paper forms received on or after 1 August 2016 will be returned to the member of staff named on the form.

Full details of how to create expense reports on Core can be found at Pay and Pensions under ‘Expenses Guide’ and the Finance Office recommends that new users familiarise themselves with this document before attempting to use the system.

Details of the University’s Expenses Policy can also be found at Pay & Pensionsunder ‘Expenses Procedures’. It is expected that all staff, claimants and approvers, familiarise themselves with the content of the policy.

Further assistance

Should any School, Institute or College require assistance in the switch over to the Core expenses system they should contact either Jim Ross (ext. 5922) or Jolene Dauth (ext. 6514) to arrange a demonstration or provide any other assistance.
