Job Opportunities After Studying in Finland
Like many students who are ambitious enough to pursue a degree abroad, you might consider cutting down the costs of your studies by taking a part-time job during your studies. So how does this work in Finland? Well, there are several ways you are allowed to do it:
- During the academic year: you can take up part-time employment if the work is related to your degree or it does not go over 25 hours/week.
- During school breaks: you can work unlimited hours!
Before you get all “Let’s go to Finland!”, you should take into account that the fastest way to get a job in Finland is if you speak Finnish or Swedish. If you’re only relying on your English-skills it might take you a bit longer to find some work placement.
Back to good news again. After your studies, you can apply for an extended residence permit for up to a year after graduation to search for work. But do it before your student residence permit expires. Once you find a job as a graduate, you can go and apply for a new residence permit, based on your new work placement.
