About Graduate Teaching Assistantships

GTA funding allows research students to fund their PhD through part-time teaching work with the University. Successful candidates will be required to do some teaching as part of their PhD training, facilitating students’ active learning in tutorials and seminars, geared towards knowledge development and application of principles set out in lectures and course materials. 

Graduate Teaching Assistants are responsible to the Head of School, and expected to undertake teaching or other duties within the School - normally not exceeding six/seven contact hours per week during term time - while undertaking research leading to a successful PhD. Training and support are provided to help them develop teaching related skills and enhance professional competencies.
