International students have the right to work while studying in France as long as they are enrolled in an institution that participates in the national student health-care plan. Students who are not nationals of EU member countries must also hold a valid residency permit. The right to work applies to all students, including those who are in France for the first time, those who are enrolled in the first year of a university program, and those who are enrolled full-time in a language school.

The law allows students to work 964 hours in a given year, which corresponds to 60% of full-time employment for the year. Minimum salary in France is €9.40/hour. Students from member countries of the European Union may work in France without restriction after they graduate. If you needed a visa to study in France and obtained a Masters degree, you can apply for a non-renewable temporary residency authorization (“autorisation provisoire de séjour” - APS) valid for 6 months beyond the date of expiration of the student’s residence permit. An APS allows you to work at any job up to the limit of 60% of the official work week.

Students who secure a job related to their academic program and with a salary equal or above 1.5 times of a salary paid at the national minimum wage can apply to switch from a student visa to a work visa.
