Campus Jobs

During the first semester in University, students are generally encouraged to focus on studies as a transition into a new education system could be challenging. However, students may opt to work on campus during the second semester. The very top students with excellent academic records and superior communication skills are usually invited to apply for a limited number of Graduate Assistantship positions. Others may have to consider non-academic positions.
