To become a member of the student team (S-Team), students must be able to work for two or more semesters in IT. In many positions priority is given to those who can work longer. Student staff are also expected to work a minimum of six hours per week, but average at eight to ten hours in most positions.

If you cannot attend training, you should apply in a future semester when you can attend.
