Dear Mr Black, 
 
Re: Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 – Request for Information 
 
Thank you for your email which was received by the University on 19 October 2009 timed 
14:28 hours, requesting the following information: 
 
 
I believe the University has appointed a new Principal. 
      
Could you please let me know: 
      
What is contained in the employment package including salary, health care, pension, 
annual leave, etc. 
 
 
University’s Response 
 
Term of Office 
The appointment is initially for a period of five years, from 1 October 2009 to 30 September 
2014.  Subject to a review by both parties not later than 1 April 2013, an extension of the term 
of the appointment may be agreed. 
 
Accommodation 
A private flat within the University campus is provided and the Principal is expected to reside 
there only during the working week. 
 
Salary, Healthcare and Pension  
The Principal’s salary is currently £250,000 per annum.  There are no private healthcare 
provisions for University staff.   The Principal, as is the case with all Academic and Academic 
Related Staff, will automatically become a member of the Universities Superannuation
