This part-time job standard can be assorted into two, on campus and off campus. On campus, all universities have the same criterion, income. Off campus, universities have different criteria but the University of Seoul (UOS) standard is same as on campus criterion.
UOS students should meet GPA (over an average of 70 percent) to be selected. The student workers get 8000 won per hour on campus and 9500 won per hour out of campus. They work far maximum of 20 hours weekly during school terms and 40 hours during vacations.
UOS recruits only once because more than enough students apply. On average, about 300 UOS students benefit from this scholarship. Park Won-bin (Dept. of Sport Science, ’08) said, “I applied for a scholarship because of high wages. My work was to manage school facilities, which was good because I could use the time inbetween classes.”
