On-Campus Jobs

Memorial offers numerous on-campus job programs that provide students with part-time employment. Since students work for the university, supervisors are understanding and flexible around a student schedule. On-campus employment programs include the Memorial Undergraduate Career Experience Program (MUCEP) and the Student Work and Service Program for Student Parents (SWASP).

Memorial Undergraduate Career Experience Program (MUCEP)

MUCEP jobs are open to all students who are registered for full-time courses in the fall and winter semesters or one course in the spring semester, and who have a minimum cumulative average of 60 percent. Each MUCEP position requires students to complete either 40 or 80 hours of work during the semester. Students are able to complete two 40 hour MUCEPs or one 80 hour MUCEP per semester. MUCEP jobs are advertised during the second week of classes each semester and students are able to use their login to view postings and apply for these jobs entirely online.

Student Work and Service Program (SWASP)

SWASP jobs are funded by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and offer students the opportunity to receive a tuition voucher and cash stipend for their work. During the fall and winter semesters these jobs are open only to student parents enrolled at Memorial University. However, they are open to all Memorial students during the spring semester. Applications for the SWASP program are available from Career Development.

Off-Campus Jobs

Off-campus jobs offer a variety of options for work around the city from employers in many different fields. Local employers often look to the Memorial University community to hire students with the skills and experience they are seeking in their employees. Information and assistance in applying to off-campus jobs can be found from Career Development.
