International students who will remain in Canada this summer are invited to apply to be part of the Summer International Work Experience Program (IWE). The IWE Program is designed to give students experience in a Canadian work environment to prepare them to enter the workforce.

There are a variety of King’s departments and jobs international students can apply to. The International Office, Enrolment Services, Physical Plant, The School of MEM and The Write Place are looking for students to perform general office duties, customer service, research, project support and, in the case of Physical Plant, grounds keeping. For a complete list of jobs available, please visit https://www.kings.uwo.ca/current-students/money-matters/financial-aid/international-students/international-work-experience-program/summer-iwe-job-list/.

The IWE Program is open to international students, registered as a full-time undergraduate student at King’s (minimum 60% course load or 40% course load for students with disabilities) in the previous September to April study period. Students will have achieved a minimum 60% average the previous academic year to qualify to apply. The applicants must be available to work in Canada for at least two months during the summer, be returning as a full-time undergraduate student at King’s, having completed an Intent to Register for the upcoming Fall/Winter term.

Students are paid $14.56 per hour (which includes 4% vacation pay) up to a maximum of 182 hours.

Over the past year, approximately 10 to 12 students per year have been involved, learning such skills as communication, problem-solving, and adaptability.

Applications will be accepted until 3:30 p.m. on Friday, March 6, 2020.
