The easiest way to make an internal call from one university phone to another is by dialling the corresponding short number (i.e., the last four digits of the relevant public number, e.g., the short number 5844 corresponds to the public landline number 737 5844). The short numbers of the university’s mobile phones assigned to particular employees normally coincide with the last four digits of the landline phone numbers of those employees.
If you use a university mobile to dial the short number of another employee who also has a university mobile, the call will be routed directly to the mobile phone of the recipient.
When using a mobile to call the landline phone of the same person, you should dial 3 before the short number. The same applies if you wish to reach that person’s mobile from your university landline number. The short numbers of university mobile phones are listed under employees’ contact information on the university’s website.

Daily allowance is paid only in case of travel abroad. The basic daily allowance rate for secondments abroad is €22.37 per day, and can be increased up to a tax-free ceiling of €32 per day.
If you are expected to make a presentation during the trip, prepare the presentation using the slide templates with UT design. You can also use UT logos.
In order to claim an advance on estimated secondment expenses (daily allowance, accommodation, travel expenses, etc.), you should fill out the corresponding application form and send it to the Finance Office together with the registered secondment authorisation, signed by the head of your unit. Otherwise, submit all proofs of payment and travel upon return, together with the Secondment Report and a signature from the head of your unit.
An employee cannot be on leave or holiday and on secondment at the same time. If such a conflict arises, you should reschedule the dates of your leave.
