Graduate Teaching Assistantships Scheme

GTAs are awards which offer a combined salary and maintenance grant.  The amount of the GTA depends on the terms and conditions of the agreement.
All GTAs offer a gross salary of £3,528 per annum (2016/17 rate).
The Scholarship element of the GTA may vary from a few hundred pounds up to a combined salary and maintenance grant equalling the full UK Research Council rate of £14,553 (rate for 2017/18) plus tuition fees at the home/EU rate.

Some academic schools offer scholarships in the form of Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) whereby postgraduate research students receive financial support in return for teaching.
Students engaged as Graduate Teaching Assistants hold a unique position in the University; they are both registered students in receipt of a scholarship and employees of the University.  As such they hold two mutually dependent agreements with the University of Kent and are required to abide by the terms and conditions of both agreements, as well as having the opportunity to enjoy the privileges afforded them in each scheme.
Terms and Conditions and Conditions of Service can be found at: https://www.kent.ac.uk/scholarships/postgraduate/terms-and-conditions.html 


Full details of GTAs will appear on the relevant academic school web pages https://www.kent.ac.uk/scholarships/postgraduate/index.html?tab=academic-schoolspecific-awardsnull
Open to applicants from any country.  Please note that overseas students must have the appropriate documentation to evidence eligibility to work in the UK.   Further information can be found here: http://www.kent.ac.uk/hr-managementinformation/documents/eligibility-to-work/checking-eligibility-guidance.pdf.
