Continuing Education Fund

The Continuing Education Fund exists to assist support and academic staff wishing to further their formal education by helping to pay the tuition fees for part-time studies at an educational institution other than Rhodes University.

In the case of all staff, fees at another institution will only be paid where the individual is unable to study at Rhodes University. In the case of support staff, this is usually because the course is not offered at Rhodes, or the staff member is unable to attend classes during the day due to work commitments. In the case of academic staff, it may be necessary to study elsewhere because of the supervisory expertise not being available at Rhodes.

The conditions of the funds including the extent of support and conditions linked to support are outlined in the document below.
