Question 1: 是否一定要写Reference?谁可以做我的Reference?
Answer: 我们强烈建议大家填写reference。我们会以大家上交的references作为参考标准并去衡量m。References分为以下两种:
1.Within CLP: 例如CLP的TAWL/老师(推荐, 或是与你一起工作过,认识你的老师或者TA/WL)
2. Beyond the academic field:例如你之前的employers, instructors, etc. 对你有专业以及公正的评估。

Question 2: 是否只有UBC Undergrad可以申请TAWL的职位, 还是有Master学位的也可以申请?
Answer: UBC的在读Master 可以申请WL的positions,但不能申请TA职位。您必须是active UBC undergrad 学生才能够申请CLP的TA的positions。

Question 3: WLs和TAs有什么区别?
Answer: TA和WLs有一些工作性质上的区别,所以他们的职责也有所不同。如果想要更加详细了解TAWLs的工作职位和责任可以查看该链接:CLP TAWL Job Description。

Question 4: Term 1 我很忙,无法胜任这个职位。我可以直接申请term2吗?
Answer: 可以。如果你只想申请term2,请在填写申请表的时候只选择申请term2的position。

Questions5: 我可以在加拿大之外的其他国家工作吗?
Answer: 根据学校规定,所有工作职位的工作人员在任职期间必须在加拿大境内。如果申请职位时暂时不能确定自己的居留情况,请在申请表格上说明情况。

Question 5: 如果我暑假在国内,但是开学前有回温哥华的意愿,申请TA可以作为入境温哥华的essential reason吗?
Answer: 特殊情况下学签不能作为入境加拿大的理由。除非学校开学并且有in person的课程,你才能以学生的身份进入温哥华。能否入境加拿大,取决于加拿大政府的入境政策。
