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!
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.
Note: While Waterloo Arts students have previously volunteered through these external programs, they are not officially affiliated with or endorsed by the University of Waterloo.
