Student Employee (SE) positions on campus
Student Employee (SE) positions are support positions in the offices at the College—such as the library, the bookstore, student services, administration, development, and publications. Student employees are paid on an hourly basis for work done. These positions are posted throughout the year, as they become available. All Government of Canada employment regulations apply. We usually have about 65 SE positions available each year, and they average 10-15 hours of work per week.
Teaching assistants help Regent faculty with various course-related tasks such as grading, research, tutorial preparation, and copying. Assistants are paid on an hourly basis for work done. Most TA positions are posted in March. All Government of Canada employment regulations apply. We usually have about 55-60 TA positions available each year, and they average 6-10 hours of work per week.

ALUMNI job board
Once you graduate, you have access to our online alumni job board. This job board is of immense benefit. There are employers who will only post jobs with us, because they value what Regent alumni bring to their organization.
As a full-time Regent student (taking a minimum of 18 credit hours per academic or calendar year) with a valid study permit, you are permitted to work either:
- on campus at Regent College
- in a church or religious organization, provided you are ministering to the spiritual needs of a congregation (defined as preaching doctrine, presiding at liturgical functions, or providing spiritual counseling). This allowance covers MDiv students during their supervised ministry component.
- long distance either by phone or internet. Your employer must be located outside of Canada and you must be remunerated from outside Canada as well. An example would be editing or translating text.
You can work under your study permit within these guidelines—you do not need a work permit. Regent College does not currently qualify for an off-campus work permit.
If you plan to work in Canada after you graduate, you can apply for a Post-Graduate Work Permit. These permits are relatively easy to obtain, and are generally valid for one to three years after you graduate, depending on the length of your program.
For information on work permits, visit the Study and Work Permits page.
Permanent residents of Canada, as well as their spouses, face no legal employment restrictions.
Spouses of full-time foreign students may accept part- or full-time employment either on or off campus. They must obtain a work permit from Canadian Immigration prior to commencing the work.
Information on work permits can be found on the Study and Work Permits page.
