A Specialist (Guest) Lecturer is defined by HMRC as an external specialist who is invited to lecture for the University on no more than three sessions in three consecutive months or as an external specialist who is invited to speak at a lecture which is open to the public.
Only one-off lectures as defined above should be claimed on the Specialist Lecturer Claim Form. A specialist lecturer must not undertake any duties other than giving a lecture.
No tax or National Insurance contributions will be deducted from fees paid. Reasonable expenses will be paid in line with University’s current expense policy.
