Demonstrating / teaching opportunities

Postgraduate students have the opportunity to get involved with teaching through supporting undergraduates with practical research or assisting with events such as outreach activities.

Supporting our teaching and outreach activities will enhance your CV.

Assisting with outreach teaching

As a demonstrator, you will not only be contributing to our undergraduate teaching, you will also be adding to your own skills and experience. The skills you gain will enhance your CV and give a significant boost to your next career move, whether you are looking to remain in academia or move into other sectors.

All postgraduates are given mandatory training before becoming demonstrators. If you wish to extend your participation further, you can join the Postgraduate Induction to Learning and Teaching (PILT) scheme, which allows postgraduates to acquire credits towards an educational qualification at masters level and potentially leads to professional recognition by the UK Higher Education Academy (HEA) at associate level.
