Teaching during your doctoral studies

“Teaching has enabled me to develop a range of transferable skills” Millie Green, Doctoral student in the Dept of Mathematics

Undertaking teaching during your doctoral studies is a great way to develop a variety of transferable skills that are highly valued by employers inside and beyond academia. Project management, communication, coaching and problem solving are just some of the skills you will use every time you lead a class.

There are plenty of opportunities for you to teach here at Bath, and with external organisations too. Have a look through our comprehensive guide. It covers everything you need to know, including training, approval to teach, resources and support contacts.
