Work-Study Program

Our work-study program offers tuition remission in exchange for part-time work.

At Signum University, we work hard to keep our tuition as low as possible, but we understand that many people can still benefit from further financial assistance.

Work-study students receive tuition remission for one course per term in exchange for work of usually about five hours per week during the semester.  Please note that students new to our MA program do have to complete the application and be accepted for admission to the program before enrolling in our MA courses.

Work-study students are placed in one or more of our staff teams based on their skills, interests, and experience, and they will be matched with a team leader who will be responsible for supporting and overseeing their work. Students who complete their work for the semester satisfactorily and would like to continue in the program for future semesters will be welcome to do so.

Work-Study Eligibility

There are a few legal matters that we have to make sure all our prospective work-study participants are aware of:

  • You will need to provide evidence that you are legally able to work in your country of residence.
  • You will need to submit some legal paperwork to Signum University before you can take part in the work-study program.
  • For certain roles within the university, we may be obligated to perform a background check in accordance with university policy, with your consent.

Desired Skills

Signum is looking for people who have experience working in the following areas:

  • Web Design and Editing (WordPress experience required)
  • Bookkeeping (basic data entry; any experience with financial bookkeeping is a plus)
  • Human Resources
  • Event Planning
  • Writing and Editing
  • Audio and Video Editing and Production

If you are interested in the Signum work-study program, please contact us and mention “Work Study” in the subject line. Give us a brief summary of your skills and experience, and a member of our Employment Team will be in touch with you soon. Placement in the program is not assured, but we will do our best. Placement is determined by two factors:  financial need, and our ability to match you with any openings.

We hope you will join the Signum University team in building an exciting future together!
