Part-time work opportunities
Finland offers a lot of support to the student willing to work while studying. Part-time jobs are readily available and in healthy demand.
Students are allowed to work for 25 hours a week during the study period. During holidays they can work full-time. Finland has a law that makes equal pay for Finnish students and international students mandatory.

Finland offers students graduating from one of its universities the option to stay back for a year and search for jobs. They issue a residence permit to find jobs after study. This permit is only valid for a year and is non-renewable.
The students must have enough funds to sustain their stay for one year. On receiving a job or employment, the student then needs to apply for a permanent residency permit.
