Graduate teaching assistants
GTAs provide part-time teaching and marking support in undergraduate courses. This is a valuable opportunity to gain professional teaching experience.

The following guidelines apply

  • We are unable to guarantee employment until enrolments are finalised.
  • GTAs supplement the teaching of permanent lecturers. They are expected to be a graduate and will normally be enrolled for a postgraduate qualification at the University, or will have finished their degree and be working for the remainder of the semester.
  • Positions are fixed-term and part-time. The priority is usually given to current graduate students.
  • The number of tutorial groups offered in any given course depends on enrolment numbers.
  • Students in receipt of a scholarship must comply with the relevant scholarship regulations. In the event of a scholarship being awarded after the appointment date, the appointee must inform the Head of Disciplinary Area and the Scholarships Office.
  • PhD and Research MA students must consult their supervisor(s) about their interest in tutoring.
