At Utrecht University, you can organise your work in such a way as to achieve an appropriate work-life balance, regardless of whether you work full-time or part-time. The university also offers a number of specific leave arrangements.

Flexibel work schedule

According to the Collective Labour Agreement, a full-time position requires an average of 38 working hours per week, and yields 232 leave hours. You can also choose to work according to a schedule based on 40 working hours on a full-time basis, which allows for an additional 96 leave hours per year. Do you prefer to work shorter working weeks may opt to adhere to a 36 hour schedule on a fill-time basis, you consequently return 96 leave hours per year. All in all, plenty of opportunities in order to provide a healthy work-life balance.
