Study in Finland FAQ’s

Yes, Indian students can work part-time in Finland with a valid residence permit for studies. The permit allows them to work for up to 25 hours per week during the academic term and full-time during holidays. However, they should not rely on part-time work to cover their living expenses, as finding a job may be challenging.

The average hourly wage for part-time work in Finland varies depending on the sector, the region, and the skills required. The median hourly wage for all employees in 2020 was €17.3. However, students may earn less than that, especially if they work in low-skilled jobs. A rough estimate is that students can earn between €9 and €15 per hour.

The processing time for a residence permit for studies depends on several factors, such as the completeness of the application, the demand for permits, and the availability of appointments at the Finnish embassy or consulate. According to the Finnish Immigration Service (Migri), the average processing time for a first residence permit for studies in 2020 was 2 months. However, it may take longer or shorter depending on the individual case.
