There are a number of services and programmes across the University that provide support in developing yourself both personally and professionally. These opportunities complement the development opportunities provided through your own activities – within and beyond your research - and those provided by your faculty.
The Faculty will try to provide teaching opportunities for DPhil students who have successfully completed Transfer of Status and attended the Faculty’s Preparation for Learning and Teaching at Oxford (PLTO) session which is held in Hilary term. The teaching is usually up to 8 hours (corresponding to a course of tutorials, classes, or lectures of 1 hr per week for one full term) and is paid at the current student training rate. Please consult your supervisor for advice as to what teaching opportunities might be available in your field (any teaching should not impede the progress of your own research).
