They are similar to the weeklong Hero Agency Internships, but with notable differences as the Work Studies are closer to a real hero experience: During the internships, students were treated as guests at the agencies and simply present to observe and take notes. During the Work-Study, students are treated as Sidekicks, and in some cases, as Pro Heroes. Under the guidance of the Pros, the students are allowed to uses their Quirks in emergency situations, and they can be dispatched to disaster areas to aid the relief effort and join the fights against villains. The students must work in their respective agencies for at least a month, and they will be remunerated for their work.[1][2]

In this activity, any student of the hero's course can participate regardless of the year, provided they have obtained their Provisional Hero License. First year students have a harder time since they still have a lot of classes, so they will also rack up a lot of absences, needing supplementary classes to be able to continue on this path at the same level as their classmates.[2]

The students must use their networking connections from the Sport Festival to secure their work-studies. Due to it not being part of a class, but an activity is done at the discretion of the student, those who weren’t scouted at the sports festival would have a hard time lining one up to begin with. Originally, individual agencies recruited on their own, but there were many complications with trying to get U.A. students to join and opted for this method.[1]
