French law authorises foreign students to an auxillary work of 964 hours during the year, the equivalent of 60% of the legal work year. It can only be auxiliary income.
The Autorisation Provisoire de Travail (APT – Temporary Work Permit) is no longer needed to work while studying, except for Algerian students, whose status remains defined by the Franco-Algerian agreement of December 27th, 1968.
