Finding summer work

Students are expected to work during the summer months in order to save for the upcoming academic year. Work Study authorization usually includes the summer term provided the student is not scheduled to graduate at the end of the current academic year. Students approved for the Fall and/or Winter terms who are not scheduled to graduate may inquire about extending current Work Study authorization to include the Summer term by sending an email to work [dot] study [at] mcgill [dot] ca.

For help finding other work opportunities or designing a CV, visit the Career and Planning Services Office (CaPS). Learn how to maximize summer earnings by consulting our section on Money Management.

Tip: Many students struggle to save money during the summer because they have to pay rent for their Montreal apartment for the summer months if they return home. Try finding someone to sublet your apartment in Montreal to off-set this expense. Help is available at the Off-Campus Housing Office.
