Graduate Teaching Studentships
We are currently offering sixteen Graduate Teaching Studentships to start in September 2013 in a variety of research areas.
The Graduate Teaching Studentship 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 assistantship 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 £13,590 per year (2013-2014) 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. An annual programme of teaching and learning supports the Studentship.
Applicants must apply using the online application form (including a summary of your research proposal) and also submit a separate Case for Support which evidences experience of, and commitment to, university teaching and learning at undergraduate level. Please see our page on Applying for a Graduate Teaching Studentship.
The closing date for applications is 15 March 2013. Interviews for shortlisted candidates will take place in March-April 2013.
