International Teaching Assistant Services (ITA) – English Courses

***Fall 2022 course dates and times will be available mid-July. Students can register when the course details are confirmed .***

ITA Courses are 10 week courses offered in the Fall and Spring semesters. In order to be eligible for the ITA courses you must be recommended for the course by the ITA department after taking the microteaching test. Please note there are limited spaces in these courses. Priority will be given to students who have never taken an ITA course before and candidates with conditional passes. All other students will be placed on a waitlist.

If you have not been recommended for an ITA course by the ITA department, you can take a UCAELI course to qualify for microteaching.

Please visit the UCAELI website for information.
