Work Study Program
Across the University of Toronto, annually about 4,000 students participate in the University of Toronto Work Study Program. Twice a year (in the fall-winter and summer sessions), the Work Study Program offers paid, on-campus employment opportunities. Students typically work 10 hours per week (15 hours a week maximum), to a maximum of 200 hours for the fall/winter program and 100 hours in the summer program. All Work Study positions are Co-Curricular Record (CCR) recognized.
Why Participate in the Work Study Program?
Unlike other on-campus work, the Work Study program has your learning at the centre of the experience. All Work Study students are expected to set learning goals for their experience to help ensure you are intentional about what knowledge and skills you want to strengthen and develop in your role. To help you, we recommend completing the activities in the Professional Development Workbook (PDF) and consider some of the career workshops available on your campus. The Workbook is optional, and your supervisor may choose to support your learning goals in another way.
