Work While You Study

Working while you study allows you to gain valuable experience while earning some extra money.

You can work in Canada while you study at the University of Alberta as an international student, and for three years after graduation!
Getting Canadian work experience is an excellent way to build your career skills, develop language skills, make new friends, and earn some extra income. 

Work Options


Please note: working while you study is not a sufficient way to finance your education at UAlberta and you must not rely on potential employment to meet your tuition and basic living expenses. You should ensure that you have adequate and secure funding for all four years before beginning your studies.
