Get experience

Work on campus

Getting an on-campus job is an excellent way for students to earn while they learn. Network with staff and faculty at U of T as they develop workplace skills! Work Study positions will be posted on the Career Learning Network (CLN) in August, so be sure to mark your calendars.

Learning in the community

In addition to coursework – or completely outside of the classroom – your student can get involved with a local community organization and contribute to their efforts. Check out service learning courses in your area of study!

Community Action Projects (CAPs) also offer short- and long-term options to connect in the community. Become a tutor in a high school or volunteer at a
senior’s home and make a difference in their own life and the lives of others.

Community-engaged learning helps you to put your knowledge to work in a real world setting. These courses require students to complete projects by working with a community organization, applying theory to everyday life.

The CLN also has internship and volunteer opportunities that allow your student learn through new experiences.

The Professional Experience Year (PEY) Internship Program lets your student gain practical skills and income while they complete their degree.
