Work Study

Work Integrated Learning @ U of T

Across the University of Toronto, over 3,500 students are hired annually through the Work Study Program, providing a meaningful work integrated learning experience. Through paid, on-campus work experiences, students develop their knowledge, strengthen their skills, and explore how their academic studies translate to career possibilities. Work Study jobs are available in many departments and more than 40% include research positions. Students do not have to be OSAP eligible to participate in the Work Study program.

There are two Work Study programs each year: fall/winter and summer. The University covers 70% of the Work Study hourly wage.

To support a meaningful work integrated learning experience, have your student(s) complete the Professional Development Workbook. This will help them set learning goals and support you in identifying relevant projects and tasks.
