Financial Assistance

Part-time Courses of Study Fund

Human Resources has a limited budget each year to support staff who may need to complete an accredited course of study on a part-time basis, where there is a business need to complete the particular course.

Applications may need to be prioritised depending on available budget.

Guidelines and application form are available here - 2018 Financial Assistance Guidelines / 2018 Financial Assistance Application Form

Short Course/Conference Fund

Previously, Human Resources, was able to make a financial contribution towards attendance at external courses and conferences for the purposes of personal development. Funding for this centrally, via Human Resources, will no longer be available from the beginning of the 2017-18 academic and financial year.  Staff should seek support, if required, for conference attendance and associated expenditure for the purposes of personal development via their own department/budget holder.
