Post by ehab101 » Sat Aug 19, 2017 10:59 am

Hi everyone,

Good day. I recently received approval on my study permit and will be arriving to start my studies very soon. I was wondering if someone can help me out on some information. When am I able to start part time work after arriving, do I need to attain a permit for work, or there is no requirement for such?
Also I would like to know what is the best way to approach employers for work in Finland?

Your help and assistance towards this topic would be highly appreciated. :)

Regards,
Ehab Feroze

On day one in Finland. The residence permit doubles as a work permit and has info about student limitations for the employer.

Thank you for your response and the information you shared. It was helpful since I am unable to find anything on this matter on the web. :)

Hello,

If I remember correctly, student can work up to 20 hours per week. Good luck. Use Linkedin or mol.fi to find desire jobs. If you are doing great, probably you will get a full time job after graduation.

Good luck!

Thank you for your kind words and for the information, and I think it is 25 hours per week as per migri.fi. :)
