Teaching Assistantship as a novel practice at EPOKA

Starting from the 2017-2018 academic year, Teaching Assistantship has been adopted as a novel practice at EPOKA University.

All candidates for enrolment at the Master of Science study programs offered by EPOKA were eligible to apply for the “Teaching Assistant” position.

Graduates of EPOKA had to fulfil the minimum CGPA requirement of at least 3.00 out of 4.00 in order to be eligible to apply for this position whereas for graduates from outside EPOKA, the minimum CGPA requirement was at least 9.00 out of 10.00 or equivalent to it.

The Scientific Committee of each Department evaluated the applications on a competitive basis, by also holding the respective interviews and decided on the accepted candidates based on the number of available quotas for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Teaching Assistants perform a range of activities such as supporting the lecturer during the teaching time with integrative and practice-based activities, seminars and laboratories and communicating course materials to students, providing assistance in the development and organization of Department activities, including conferences, seminars, events and workshops, as well as assisting the Department in the management of various day-to-day activities.                                                              

Students are eligible to serve as Teaching Assistants only throughout the normal duration of their Master’s studies. They benefit from a 100% or 50% discount on their tuition fee based on the amount of time they are engaged in the abovementioned activities.

At the end of each academic semester, the Teaching Assistant is subject to the evaluation of his/her performance by the respective Department.
