Even though the Unified Condition of Service for Junior and Senior Staff of the Public Universities of Ghana clause 3.2 states that staff could benefit from study leave with pay after three (3) years of working experience, sponsorship in the University of Education, Winneba may be given to only junior or senior staff who have worked for a preferred number of years and this would be determined at the meeting of the Staff Development Committee and may vary from year to year depending on the following:

  1. Number of qualified staff the University is prepared financially to sponsor (for all programmes) within the academic year under consideration;
