GTA Scholarships 2012/2013
Date: Dec 02, 2011
We are offering 16 Graduate Teaching Assistantships in a variety of research areas, to start in October 2012.
This scholarship scheme offers a valuable opportunity to study for a PhD while teaching in subjects broadly related to your PhD research. Previous Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) report their teaching assistantship has provided advantages in a range of professional, industrial, research and academic careers.
The Graduate Teaching Assistantship covers full tuition fees and the scholarship for three years, based on successful PhD progression. The scholarships are worth £13,590 per year (2011-2012 levels) and are available to Home/European Union students.
GTAs work with academic staff in a range of teaching, learning and assessment activities to support undergraduate student learning up to 180 hours each academic year. These activities include supporting lectures, leading seminars, providing tutorial support, demonstrating in practical classes, marking student assessment and exam invigilation. An annual programme of teaching and learning supports the Assistantship.
For further application details and information on available teaching and research areas please see our GTA pages.
The closing date for applications is 17 February 2012.
