Student Jobs for international students

During the academic year, international students are entitled to work maximum 20 hours per week. They can work on a full time basis only during the summer holiday period (July-September). The money earned from student jobs should be considered as a supplementary source of income, not as main financial means for living in Belgium.

The Job Service can help international students to find student jobs. Nevertheless, students should be aware that they might face the following difficulties during their job search:

  • non-European students are required to have a category C work permit
  • employers in Brussels very often need bilingual French/Dutch workers

Procedures to obtain a category C work permit can be found here or explained at the Job Service or at the International Relations and Mobility Office.
