Where do typical psychology students work while saving for ones education and room and board in Canada?

Asked by talljasperman (19167 points ) November 9th, 2011

Lets say before the students get a basic degree and way before a licence to practice psychology. Where do the students get work and experience that leads to one day becoming a psychologist. Student loans and borrowing money from parents are not an option. Also not just limited to summer work, but to year round employment. $15,000 is for one years study. Assuming one needs only $1200 a month to live off of and the rest is put into savings for education. Also how long does the typical Psychology student take to save $60,000 for four years of university in Canada?

I’ve known people to work 35 to 40 hours a week all year round while attending university. Saving for each year’s tuition is harder when you are having to support yourself as well but you could look for shared accommodation to cut down on those costs. You should spend a year saving before you take the plunge.

Good luck :-)
