Graduate students can find meaningful employment opportunities in a number of places at the university, from our tutorial system which provides teaching experience to research assistant jobs which provide practical lab experience, to co-op programs and industry internships.

International Students

You may work part time on campus if you are enrolled full time at SFU and hold a valid study permit. A work permit is not required, however you will require a Social Insurance Number.

“On campus” is defined by CIC as employment facilities within the boundaries of the campus. SFU students are permitted to work at any of the three SFU campuses (Burnaby, Vancouver and Surrey). Your employer can be SFU (temporary assignments), a faculty member, the Student Society, yourself (e.g. private tutoring) or a private business or private contractor providing services to the institution on the campus.

For more information on your employment options on and off campus, see the International Services for Students website and the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) website.

Spouses and common-law partners of international students may also be eligible to apply for work permits. See the International Services for Students website  and the Citzenship and Immigration Canada website for more info.
