Teaching Assistantship

A stipend may be paid to a full–time degree candidate who teaches in one of the York Faculties or colleges. Normally, such teaching will consist of a tutorial or seminar work in a timetabled course in which the lectures are given by a full–time member of Faculty, this teaching being considered equal, when preparation is counted, to no more than ten hours of work per week.

For students who receive scholarships or research assistantships, under new tax regulations this income is now 100 per cent tax exempt.
