Work Study Program
The University of Toronto Work-Study Program provides opportunities for eligible students to be employed part-time on campus from September to April or during the summer term. These jobs are available to both undergraduate and graduate students. You must first qualify for government assistance (though you do not necessarily have to accept the loan you are awarded) and generally be registered as a full-time student. Full information is available from Admissions and Awards. Positions for this program are posted in early September on the Career Centre portal, and may be offered by various departments at the University of Toronto, including the PT Department. The PT Department will email current student regarding positions within the PT Department, however students should visit the Career Centre portal for available positions in other departments.
Occasionally, faculty will have a budget for research assistants in their grants. Positions will generally be emailed to students as they arise.
Teaching Assistant positions at U of T are generally offered to U of T graduate students and may involve conducting tutorials, grading undergraduate essays or exams, and acting as a resource person for undergraduate students. To learn about available positions, a student should visit the website of the Department concerned. In the Department of PT, these positions are not available to current PT students for various reasons such as confidentiality.
