Why work or volunteer abroad?

Working or volunteering abroad is a great way to see the world, broaden your horizons, and gain valuable experience and skills.

In the past, Arts students have...

  • volunteered in the Dominican Republic for four weeks
  • worked on co-op at an American school in Germany
  • volunteered in an AIDS orphanage in South Africa
  • worked at a bear sanctuary in Kosovo

...and much more!

Work abroad

Co-op students can work abroad, either by applying to international co-op positions in WaterlooWorks or by finding their own jobs.

A part-time job may be possible during your exchange term; however it does depend on the specific regulations of the country you’re going to. Check out the partner university’s website for any job information for international students.
