FAQ Search

I am a student from outside the Netherlands. Can I get a part time job in the Netherlands?

Foreign students who would like to take paid work alongside their studies are allowed to do so. However, the possible lack of knowledge of the Dutch language might make it difficult for you to find a job. Students can search for part-time jobs through temporary job agencies, RSM's Career Centre, advertisements in newspapers, or the Internet. Depending on your nationality you can only do so for a limited amount of hours per week, and only if the employer has applied for a work permit for you.

EU/EEA countries

Students from most of the EU and EEA countries can work in the Netherlands without restriction. Your employer does not need to apply for a work permit and you are allowed to work as many hours as you want and earn money alongside your studies or internship activities without a work permit.

Non-EU/EEA countries

If you are a student from outside the EU/EEA and you have a valid residence permit, you are allowed to work either 10 hours a week throughout the year, or full-time during the months of June, July and August. In both cases your prospective employer will need to apply for a work permit for you. More information on the procedure can be found the Nuffic and IND website or contact the Centre for Work and Income.
