Disclaimer: This information is subject to change. In the case of conflicting information, contact studyabroad(a)es.uzh.ch.

This program is offered annually to students interested in teaching German (or French) to secondary school students in Britain. Before applying you must have completed two years of University study and have either German or French as a native language. You teach 12 hours weekly (preparation time for the lessons is in addition to the 12 hours teaching time) for about nine months (from October to May in England and Wales; from September to May in Scotland and Northern Ireland) for an income that should cover your cost of living. Accommodation and travel expenses are your responsibility.
