The University of Oxford’s policy on maternity and adoption leave and pay is one of the most generous in UK higher education. Eligible parents are entitled to up to 26 weeks leave at the rate of full pay, followed by up to 13 weeks at the rate of statutory pay and 13 weeks unpaid leave. There are similarly enhanced benefits for Shared Parental leave.
