Geektastic: I'm feeling very jealous of a friend of mine who, about 20 years ago, was sent to Hull University for 2 years to do an MA ON FULL SALARY by his employer!!

He was effectively a student with a grant of (in today's money) at least $100,000 a year equivalent. B*****d!!


I am currently employed by a Tertiary education provider, and while I don't get to study full time on salary, what I do get is pretty damn generous. Help's make up for the lousy pay packets in the education sector :-P




It's still fairly common for employers to pay generously towards study where it is related to work, in the UK anyway.

The only place I have really seen it here is in the Defence Force.


It's available in a lot of corporates. My employer will pay 80% up to a cap per annum with time off to attend lectures. It doesn't get you any relief from hitting your targets though ;)


Funny that. When I had heart surgery I went back to work on a 4 day week. Curiously although my pay was docked 20%, my work load and responsibilities were not....

Im off to uni in 4 week time on full pay being paid for by the Navy. Trying to complete my Diploma in engineering.

My wifes employer is paying for he to complete her BA, but its only part time study and she still has to work 40h a week. so its going to take her a few years to complete it all. but its better than nothing.
