Students

Undergraduate and postgraduate students looking to claim expenses should contact their school office to submit expenses on their behalf.

Before a Student expense claim can be entered, the individual claiming the expense must be registered in the OneSource Finance system. Members of staff can register a student via the Student Expenses Set Up form.

Advances

The Cash Advances detailed procedure is accessible from the Policy Zone.

Members of staff who undertake foreign travel may claim a cash advance if they will incur expenditure on behalf of the University whilst on the trip.  Cash advances are only available for overseas travel and are paid in GBP to the staff member’s bank account.  The amount of the advance should be kept to a minimum with expenditure being incurred through normal procurement processes wherever possible.  On their return the member of staff must submit an expense claim to account for the expenditure and any outstanding cash should be returned to Finance.  Staff will not be issued with another advance until outstanding advances are cleared.  Advances require 5 working days notification.

This form must be completed and authorised in order to claim an Advance. Once completed it should be sent to:

Cash Office

University Credit Card

The Corporate Cards procedure sets out the procedures on the use of Corporate Cards and is accessible from the Policy Zone.

The University may issue credit cards to staff members who travel frequently or who incur high levels of non-procurement expenditure. The cards are only available for business use and are to be used predominantly for expenses and not for the purchase of equipment.

This form should be completed, authorised by the Head of School/Section and returned to the Finance Section. The application will be reviewed and if approved, a Corporate Card Application Form supplied by the bank will be issued for completion, along with a declaration agreeing to the terms of use of the card.
