Teaching Opportunities

The Graduate School encourages all PhD students to take appropriate teaching opportunities. Many teaching opportunities are informal through supporting undergraduate project students or providing guidance for less experienced research students, training is not a requirement for informal teaching but is advised. Training is compulsory for all students prior to taking part in formal, paid teaching.

Three Schools in the Faculty of Medical Sciences provide teaching opportunities.  Formal teaching opportunities are normally only available to full time doctoral research students (not available to MRes)
