UP Teaching Assistantship Program

Teaching Associates or Teaching Fellows, collectively known as Teaching Assistants, as defined by the UP Diliman Faculty Manual, are postgraduate students assigned to teach undergraduate courses in the department where they are enrolled. Considered non-regular members of the teaching staff, they are appointed on a yearly contractual basis to teach part-time until the maximum residence period allowed by UP (i.e., 5 years for master’s students, 6 years for PhD students with a master’s degree upon admission, and 8 years for those doing straight PhD). In return, they receive full-time graduate study privilege. The teaching load is a minimum of 6 units and a maximum of 9 units a semester, and the semester’s study load must be 6 to 9 units of graduate course work or 12 units of thesis or dissertation work.
