The Work Learn Program supports and subsidizes meaningful work experiences on and off campus, offering current UBC Vancouver students the opportunity to develop their professional skills in a professional work environment. You can learn from a mentor, expand your professional network, gain work experience and skills through a part-time UBC job while still taking classes.
Community Based Work Learn
If you identify as an Indigenous student or a student with a disability, you’re invited to develop your professional skills in an off-campus Work Learn job with mentorship and training opportunities.
“[This] was my first full-time job where I gained an exposure working with many health personnel, like Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and researchers. Right now, I am working on a literature review for the government, and it never ceases to amaze me how many doors one Work Learn opportunity opens.”

“I had no work experience in Canada and little work experience in the customer service/administration side of things. This position allowed me to be a part of an amazing team composed of my coworkers and supervisors and to be involved in project management, write resource guides and lead workshops.”
