Graduate Assistantship (GA) Scheme


The Graduate Assistantship (GA) Scheme offers a fantastic opportunity for you to complement your postgraduate study with exposure to real life working environments within a paid position at the College.

With only ten positions on offer, the GA scheme is a much sought after opportunity. Each post comprises a term-time contract of 15 hours a week and is an ideal opportunity for those who would like to work within education, research, sport or marketing.

This competitive programme has seen past graduates going on to roles such as Lecturing, Performance Analysis, Senior Coaching positions and Sponsorship Coordinator roles to name a few. Applications will be scrutinised individually with those with good organisational and interpersonal skills welcomed. 

Each Graduate Assistant will complete a full induction programme and receive ongoing continuing professional development opportunities throughout the year, while adding a distinctive range of workplace responsibilities to their CVs. As such, the GA scheme offers the ideal opportunity to subsidise postgraduate study fees, while demonstrating the ability to combine further degree study with the demands of contributing to a challenging professional workplace environment and developing a range of transferable skills that are highly prized by potential future employers.
