Work and study in 2020

International students working rights

Are you looking for casual work in 2020? The CQUniversity Inclusion & Accessibility Service is in the process of updating its register of Participation Assistants.

If you are a motivated person with sound academic achievement and willing to dedicate 1 – 3 hours per week, when required, to assist a fellow student, please apply.

Keep reading to find out how to apply.

Participation Assistants provide one-on-one support to all students (TAFE, SUN, STEPS, undergraduate and postgraduate) requiring assistance with study, time management and organisational skills, assistive technology, note-taking, reading and other related tasks.

Participation Assistants provide discrete support to students registered with the Inclusion & Accessibility Service, often meeting weekly in Libraries or online via zoom. Full training is provided.

Under the direction of a Disability Adviser and in consultation with individual students, Participation Assistants work collaboratively to enable registered students with the Inclusion and Accessibility Service to meet their academic and personal goals.

This is a great opportunity to help other students whilst you study.
