The Work-Study Program gives you the chance to work part time on campus. If you need more funds to cover all of your education-related costs, you may be eligible for this program.
Work experience: Last year, more than 1,500 positions were available across all faculties and services. The jobs vary from one department to the next, and in most cases, participants find a position in their chosen field.
Money: During the regular academic year (September to April), you can work part time and earn $3,000 - sometimes more - while you take courses! During the summer session, you work full time and can earn around $6,000 over 18 weeks.
applying for the program is easy with the Work-Study Navigator. Since all the forms you need are online and available through your uoZone
account, you have no running around to do!
