Teaching Opportunities "Graduates as Tutors"

St Anne’s is committed to developing its graduate scholars as the next generation of university teachers. These scholarships offer doctoral students training in university teaching which enables them to teach some undergraduates.

A Graduate Development Scholar, depending on teaching experience (not obligatory!) and enthusiasm, will be required to undergo training in teaching (via the Oxford Learning Institute, and any other department training required). Each Graduate Development Scholar will teach for up to three hours per week as directed by the subject Fellows in College. This “teaching” may also comprise study and tutorial support for students, as well as academic administrative support for the Fellow(s) in the School. All Graduate Development Scholars are mentored and directed by the Fellow(s) in the School.
