A good and supporting place to work.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Leicester – 31 July 2017
As a Graduate Teaching Assistant, during the semester my day would be split between my PhD work and my work with undergraduates. For the former, my supervisor was always supportive, and critically, honest, which led to my choice to resign from my PhD when the project was not working out.
In my capacity as a GTA, my timetable and expectations were clearly laid out, and when I needed anything, the admin team was heappy to provide and efficient. In delivering feedback, I was clear and open.
The department is a very good employer, and although a PhD is not a trivial task, if I had the opportunity to work on one again with the department and a better suited project, I would happily do so.
