Teaching Opportunities

As a postgraduate student in the CSC you may take on teaching commitments as long as they do not impact negatively on your studies. If you are unsure please talk to your personal tutor or supervisor.

Many students find teaching very rewarding and part of their career development. As an interdisciplinary centre as well as teaching in the Centre for Scientific Computing you may find teaching opportunities in our member departments of Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Statistics, Engineering, Life Sciences, Systems Biology, WMG, Warwick Medical School and Computer Science. For opportunities in any of these department please consult their web pages for information on their employment processes.

Please refer to your funding or visa requirements, if necessary, when considering taking on a teaching commitment.


For teaching opportunities in the CSC, in the first instance please contact the secretary of the Centre who is who is responsible for ensuring best practice in supporting postgraduates who teach, and who can provide liaison with the Learning and Development Centre.

Postgraduates who wish to teach in the CSC will first be assessed as to their suitability either by the module leader or by the Director of the Centre. Suitablilty will include skills in language, communication and appropriate training.

Postgraduates who wish to teach in the CSC should first attend the Introduction to Teaching & Learning in Higher Education workshop provided by the Learning and Development Centre.

Postgraduates who teach in the CSC will be allocated a teaching mentor who will either be the Director of the Centre or the module leader who will be able to advise on teaching issues, to discuss problems and to provide feedback as appropriate.

The CSC will arrange opportunities for CSC postgraduates who teach in the CSC and member departments to meet termly to share good practice and discuss matters of common interest.
