Sabbatical and Research Leave

Faculty members can benefit from a one-year sabbatical leave. This program aims to continuously advance global connections among local faculty. Sabbatical leave is available for those faculty members who have given six or more years of full-time service to the University.


Faculty members can also benefit from a 28-day research leave once a year. Faculty members may use this leave to work with researchers located overseas or to collect data from places other than Oman. Interested faculty members need to apply through their HoD, and the application is finally approved by College Board. In addition, faculty can also benefit from research visits which are supported from funded research projects.
