Pre-retirement course

If you're considering retirement, it might help you to attend one of the University's pre-retirement courses.

The Pensions department runs a half day pre-retirement course twice a year, usually in March and September, to help you plan for your retirement, and all members of staff who are over the age of 60 are invited to attend because it’s a useful planning tool in the run up to retirement.

The course covers:

  • Health & wellbeing in retirement
  • University pension benefits
  • State pension benefits 
  • Financial matters

Places are limited so, once you receive your invitation, send your acceptance form back as soon as possible to reserve a place. You’ll only be able to attend the course once.

If you’re retiring before the age of 60, you’ll need to let the Pensions department know because you won’t automatically be invited.
