Academic leave

ALL academic research leave applications, including HoD Leave and other externally funded special leave, must be applied for online at: https://ross.ru.ac.za. This is in order that the HOD, Dean and DVC: R&D are informed and can approve the leave. The online system is open for RU academic leave applications for the month of July. Approved RU Academic Leave notifications are sent out by the end of November.

For other types of leave applications (externally funded or special leave), please contact your HR Practitioner to have the system opened.
