What does the programme involve?

Teach English in schools across the globe, gain first-hand experience in the classroom and, if you're a language student,  put your language skills into good use with the University's  teaching assistant programme.

Spending your placement year in an overseas school will not only benefit you as an individual - you'll be making one of the world's most widely spoken languages more accessible to young students.

As a Language Assistant, you will work between 12 and 20 hours a week and earn a local salary. You may also be eligible for additional funding via the European Commission’s Erasmus Programme.

How do I get a place as a teaching assistant?

This prestigious English Teaching Assistant programme is led by the British Council. Our Placements Team will provide you with information on the variety of opportunities available to you and will assist you with the application and interview processes. Find out more about the scheme by visiting the British Council website.
