Before making any domestic travel arrangements, you must obtain approval by filling out the School's travel approval form and submit the completed form to the School Office. Regardless of who funds your travel, this authorisation is needed for you to be covered by University travel insurance.

For international travel requests, please ensure you complete both the School's approval form and the University's Notification to Travel Form.

If you will be away for more than a week, fill out this study leave form and submit the completed form to the Graduate Centre.
