What are the benefits of teaching as a postgraduate psychology student?

29 Mar 2018

Having completed my PhD in the School of Psychology, Cardiff University, I was fortunate in having ample opportunities to teach. The experiences I gained at this time have been invaluable for a number of reasons, and I would strongly encourage any postgraduate considering whether or not to teach, that it will be well worth their while. I therefore aim here to briefly outline the teaching responsibilities that I took on whilst completing my PhD, and to discuss the benefits that postgraduate psychology students may gain from acquiring similar experiences.
