Employment in university offices is an additional form of financial help. It differs from Work-Study in that students apply directly for jobs posted by various LAU departments in a portal rather than being assigned through the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office. Being on financial aid is not a prerequisite for student employment.
Note: You cannot benefit from student employment on your very first semester at LAU.
How It Works
LAU offices advertise their openings in the Student Employment Portal (requires login), where students can apply for the openings that suit them. Supervisors may interview candidates before hiring them.
Once you start, you fill out an electronic timesheet daily. At the end of every month, the timesheet is validated by your supervisor and your salary is disbursed.
The maximum hours you can work per semester depends on these factors:
|Full-time student without work-study hours||25||25|
|Full-time student with work-study||18||15|
|Unenrolled student||(Not applicable)||32|
The entire set of rules and processes regulating student employment is detailed in the Student Employment Procedure (requires access to LAU’s portal).
