Financial Assistance

Part-time Courses of Study Fund

Applications and Guidelines for the 2015-16 Part-time Courses of Study Fund are available here.  The closing date for receipt of applications is 31 July 2015.

Short Course/Conference Fund

Update: November 2014

The budget allocated for funding towards staff applications for Short Courses/Conferences offered by Staff Training and Development Unit for the current academic year 2014-15 has been fully allocated.

Unfortunately we will not be accepting any new applications for funding via this method in the current academic/financial year. The application form and guidelines have been withdrawn from this website and no new forms will be issued until 1 July 2015.  Staff are reminded that retrospective applications will not be accepted and funding cannot be carried over, i.e. funding is allocated for the academic year in which the course/conference takes place or the part-time fee pertains.

Staff who have received confirmation of support are encouraged to submit the relevant information as outlined in their confirmation communication as soon as possible so that funding can be processed.  It is the staff member’s responsibility to ensure that they have read and complied with the guidelines and information provided.

Funding to attend HEaTED Training Courses (Technical Staff only)

All applications must be made in advance, discussed and signed off by the relevant Head of Area.

Contract Research Staff Training and Development Fund (Suspended)

The Staff Training and Development Unit established this fund to support school-based training opportunities for contract research staff.  Unfortunately, the fund is currently suspended due to a decrease in the funding made available by RCUK for research development activities.   For further information please see Contract Research Staff Training and Development Fund
