Graduate Teaching Studentships for September 2014

The University of Salford is offering up to 16 Graduate Teaching Studentships to start in September 2014 in a variety of research areas.

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 Studentships (GTSs) report their teaching studentship has provided advantages and benefits in a range of professional, industrial, research and academic careers.

The Graduate Teaching Studentship covers full tuition fees and the scholarship for three years, based on successful PhD progression. The scholarships are worth £13,7260 per year (2013-2014 levels) and are available to Home/European Union students.

GTSs 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. A mandatory programme of teaching and learning during the first year supports the Studentship.

The 2014 competition is currently open until 31st March 2014.
