Further Study

Further Study for Staff at ATU Sligo

ATU Sligo is committed to supporting staff to develop their skills and competence through the acquisition of academic qualifications, in line with the needs and objectives of the Institute. The process of identifying development needs is the Performance Management and Development scheme where objectives are agreed and development needs discussed and applications will only be considered where they have resulted from a PMDS meeting.

The policy is open to all staff. Support will be available on a prioritised basis to those requests that most closely meet the university’s strategic objectives. These objectives include:

  • Acquisition of a Level 10 qualification or equivalent
  • Acquisition of qualifications relating to strategic objectives
  • The development of online learning


Applications for Academic Year 2023/2024 are now open.

The closing date for receipt of applications is Friday, March 10th, 2023.

The university will continue to consider PhD applications throughout the year. To apply for PhD funding, please discuss with your Head of Department prior to submitting an application using the form below.
