Studying in a university for an undergraduate or graduate degree can be a full time job. That is why many people in the work force find it difficult to juggle professional employment and a student work load. This has led to many employees taking study leaves from work to concentrate on their education. A study leave basically allows a staff member to take off from work for an extended time to attend classes. There is usually some sort of agreement between the company and the staff member that they can rejoin at the same position they left. In some cases they are offered better positions because of their improved qualifications. If you plan on availing your companies study leave opportunities, then try using one of the templates below to send to your supervisor.
