Can a European student work in France?

Verified 28 décembre 2020 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

Yes, if you are European, you can work as an employee during your studies. You do not have to have a residence permit or a work authorization.

You must be employed as an accessory (i.e., in addition to your studies).

You can work a maximum of 964 hours per year, or 60% the total duration of the statutory annual working time.

If you exceed this quota, you change the category of reason for stay. You will then rise from category of workers..
