Student opportunities



Winter Session 2022-2023


In making assignments, priority will be given to students as set out in Appointment Priority Policy A of Appendix “A” on p. 38 of the UVic/CUPE 4163 (Components 1 & 2) Collective Agreement. Preference will be given to graduate students registered in the Department of Psychology, although an application does not ensure employment. Interested parties are invited to submit applications in the event that there are more positions available than there are applications from those in priority categories, or where a resignation of an incumbent TA results in positions becoming available. Postings are subject to funding availability (in some cases based on course enrolment numbers) and/or course cancellation.


It is sometimes difficult to estimate course enrolments in advance of the commencement of classes. As registration proceeds, the number of TA hours assigned per course may need to be increased where enrolments are higher than anticipated. At the same time, courses that do not attain a set minimum enrolment may become ineligible for TA support, the number of hrs may be reduced, or in rare cases the course may be cancelled.


In keeping with Appendix “A” on p. 40 of the Collective Agreement,” in the event a student will be employed in a major appointment as a non-bargaining unit grant-funded Research Assistant (or other grand-funded position), or where a student will be receiving a major grant or major fellowship, appointment priority will be adjusted to Level 4 in Policy A, or to level 3 in Variance 1, unless mutually agreed otherwise by the parties. Where a non-appointment occurs in the first year of the graduate program as a result of a fellowship or grant that is limited to one year, the student will be considered Level 2 in Policy A in their second year”.
