Student Campus Work Scheme

Student Campus Work Scheme

The Student Campus Work Scheme (SCWS) is aimed to encourage HSUHK students to be self-reliant through gaining some working experience on campus. Students can check the details of the campus jobs available in JINESS Portal where both prospective HSUHK Hiring Departments and the interested HSUHK Student Applicants can find a job match.

Eligibility: Full-time undergraduate and post-graduate students may apply to work on a part-time basis during the period of their candidature.

Students are advised to work for a maximum of 15 hours per week during Term time so as to not adversely affect their studies. Students should note that commitments from employment will not be accepted as valid reasons for absence, uncompleted work, late submission of work, or poor performance, and may lead to exclusion from certain full-time programmes.


  • Exchange students are not eligible to join the scheme.
  • Non-local students (excluding exchange students) of full-time locally-accredited local programmes at undergraduate level or above whose study period is not less than one academic year may, during the currency of their limit of stay take up part-time on-campus employment for not more than 20 hours per week throughout the year; and employment during the summer months (1 June to 31 August).
