Video clip: Maria explains that her managers gave her two weeks discretionary leave to complete the training with her guide dog.

What sort of leave arrangements did you have, to be off work for two weeks to do that training?

I have to say, the university was very good at that. They gave me the two weeks. That wasn't holiday. They gave me the days off because they thought that they had - it's the right thing to do. So they told me, and my bosses here, they told me "Just take your time. This is not holiday, take your time, until you are prepared to come back. And please come back." So that was amazing. Yeah.
