The Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences recognises that our staff and students have lives outside of work, and that, for many, it can be a struggle to balance the two. Our flexible working policies and initiatives for those who require extra support allow our staff and students to find their own work-life balance.


Our Department operates a variety of flexible working policies in line with the University. This includes family leave and the option to work part-time or from home
