Work Study Program
The Work Study Program offers paid, on-campus positions that provide you with an opportunity to deepen your knowledge, strengthen your skills and explore how your academic studies translate to career possibilities. Unlike other on-campus work, the Work Study program has your learning at the centre of the experience.

How The Program Works
The program runs twice a year (fall-winter and summer) with specific application and hiring dates.
All Work Study students and supervisors are expected to:
- set learning goals – students set learning goals with their Work Study supervisor, have a mid-point check-in, and final review of the learning goals
- students complete a self-assessment at the end of the Work Study Program
- supervisors are encouraged to provide formal feedback about the student’s work performance

Considerations & Exceptions
Students do not have to be OSAP eligible to participate in the Work Study program.
For staff and faculty who are posting remote Work Study positions, please keep in mind that you can ask students to have a computer, Internet access, a webcam, and/or a phone in order to complete their work (at most).
What Students Are Saying2 votes
Though the [Work Study] position was not related to my field of study in particular (Political Science), it nevertheless helped me to develop very valuable transferable skills that will be helpful in my future career.
