Student work in Belgium

As a student you receive from the government  a package of 475 hours each year (your ‘quota’) during which you pay less in social contributions than a standard employee.

You are allowed to work for more than 475 hours, but the amount of social security contributions will be higher as of the 476th hour worked. More information: Student at work. 

If your nationality isn’t that of any of the states of the European Union or that of any of the following states: Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland or Switzerland, you need a residence permit to work in Belgium (which states that you can work here temporarily).

Finding a job as an international student isn’t easy because of the language (Dutch and/or French is required).
