Work Study Migration to Experience Guelph

The Experiential Learning team has been working hard over the past few months to find new ways of connecting students to experiential learning opportunities on and off campus.

In recognition of the valuable skills that students are gaining through employment on-campus, the Work Study Program was identified as one of the five co-curricular forms of experiential learning. This means Work Study students will now have the opportunity to be recognized on their new Experiential Transcript for their work with Work Study supervisors across campus.

To support students in accessing experiential learning opportunities across campus, the University of Guelph will be launching a new online opportunities database called Experience Guelph. This database will be a one-stop shop for students seeking courses and co-curricular experiences that incorporate experiential learning.

This section will help Work Study supervisors learn more about the process of migrating the Work Study job search process to Experience Guelph.
