Who can work as a working student?

Your 'status' determines whether you can work as a working student. Below is an overview of the conditions you need to fulfil to be able to work and a list of categories of student who may NOT work. Are you a foreigner? Then your nationality, the period of employment and the number of working hours also play a role.  At the moment you may require a work permit (type C), this will change in the near future. Belgium is finally close to the introduction of a single residency and work permit as required by EU law. You can find more information about this below.
