The project:

A GTA scholarship requires the Postgraduate Research (PGR) student to teach Undergraduate students, as well as carry out research. The University of Bristol policy on PGRs who Teach makes it clear that teaching is optional for most PGRs, therefore the Law School takes care to ensure that anybody appointed as a GTA is capable of teaching and has sufficient time to do the job properly. The GTA will have a teaching contract, making it very clear what is expected from their teaching role, and puts in place the framework to allow them to deliver on both teaching and research.

How to apply:

Please make an online application for this project at http://www.bris.ac.uk/pg-howtoapply. Please select <PhD in Law> on the Programme Choice page. You will be prompted to enter details of the studentship in the Funding and Research Details sections of the form.

Applicants should:

  • also apply for a place to study a PhD with the School.
  • expect to hold a first class/good upper second class Bachelor’s and Master’s with distinction/merit (or equivalent qualifications) in any relevant discipline.

Candidates will be selected for these awards on the basis of:

  • academic excellence;
  • teaching experience (or potential), matched to teaching needs;
  • research potential.
