Relocation Scheme

Please note that the detailed Relocation Scheme Arrangements information has recently moved and is now held on a web page available to University staff only.

Last updated: 30 September 2013

The University operates a discretionary Relocation Scheme that may be available to new staff, depending upon circumstances, eligibility and the availability of funding from their department/grant provider.

Payment of the relocation costs for any appointment is at the discretion of departments. New staff should not assume that they are eligible until the approval of both/either the department/grantor has been received.

As such, all enquiries regarding eligibility to the scheme should be to refer to the employing department in the first instance.

Additional guidance is available for departments on the Relocation Scheme Eligibility and General Conditions page (available to University staff only), and full details on tax implications on relocation packages may be obtained from UK Tax Enquiry Centres and Offices and also at on the HMRC website.  

If you have been advised by the employing department that you are eligible for reimbursement of relocation expenses and have a query about your existing application, please contact the Relocation Officer at
