College staff can benefit from an interest-free loan to help with the costs of part-time study while employed by Imperial. The aim is to help staff engage in study that will further their career aspirations yet falls outside of the provision available within the College. The scheme works similarly to the Season Ticket Loan and the i-Cycle scheme.

In essence, staff with at least another 7 months of their appointment to run can apply for a loan to pay fees for a course of study through a recognised learning provider. Repayments are usually spread over 10 months (fewer if their appointment is shorter) and repaid via their monthly salary.

Full details of the scheme can be found on these pages – please ensure that you meet all criteria before applying.

Further support for study

Study loans are not intended as a substitute for departmental investment and particularly not for training that is essential for the job role. We anticipate that departmental investment will continue as before. The Study leave policy provides another possible source of support for staff members wanting to invest in their career development and looking to the College to help them.
