The challenges and benefits of working while pursuing PSE

“With the average undergraduate university program costing $6,373 in tuition for the current academic year, up about 40 per cent from 10 years ago, it is little wonder that many students feel the need to support their studies with part-time work,” writes Paul Attfield for the Globe and Mail. The author highlights how schools like York University, Concordia University, and Dalhousie University help students find employment and balance this work with their academic commitments. The benefit of doing so, Attfield writes, is not only a lower debt load for students, but invaluable work experience that will give them a leg up when trying to find employment after graduation.
