Guidelines on Financial Assistance and Support for Staff Undertaking Approved Part-time Courses of Study for 2015-16 (please read Guidelines before completing the application form).
It is recommended that study/examination leave will be offered to staff when the course fee is being met by the University at 100% or 50%. One study leave day per examination plus time to attend an examination is considered a reasonable example. This must be fully discussed and agreed in advance between the Head of Area and the staff member taking into account work commitments. It would be expected that additional leave would not be granted for courses of study not being supported by the University.
