I have two questions about student residence permit:
- If I start my master studies in city A, is this legal to live city B and work part time there?
- Is it legal not to register in my university for one semester in a year and work full-time instead in that semester?
How to? Read other's experiences. Find useful advice on shipping, immigration, residence permits, visas and more.

With a student residence permit you will have the right to work if such work is part of a traineeship required for a degree or is on a research paper required for the studies. You may perform other kinds of work for 25 hours a week on average during the academic term. The number of working hours is not restricted on a weekly level, which means that you can work periodically during the academic term according to your situation, so that you work for 25 hours a week on average.
You have full freedom to work at the times when your educational institution offers no instruction, that is, during summer and Christmas holidays.
