Special Studies Program

Faculty Special Study Programs (SSP) committees are responsible for assessing academic staff applications for study leave based on the eight criteria set out in the Special Studies Program Policy. Faculty SSP committees also decide on funding for each eligible applicant (sourced from a central fund).

2014 meeting dates

The Special Study Program is currently undergoing an internal review. Meetings dates will be set following the review and are likely to be held in May and June 2014 to consider applications for 2015.
