Working in France

AGS being eligible for the French Student Social Security plan, AGS students are allowed to work in France with their Student visa or Residence Permit (carte de séjour) up to 964 hours a year. This may translate into approximately a half-time job during the school year and a full-time job during the summer or other breaks.

Students may work as short-term employees ("CDD" type of contract) or interns.

AGS may provide students with the legal framework to facilitate the internship process ("convention de stage" agreement), whether it is an internship taken for credit (see information here) or not. Please note that the school may not provide this "Convention de Stage" agreement to students once they have graduated. Additionally, please note that students may not pursue an internship for more than six months in total per school year (September to August).

quote leftAGS brought me closer to the world, and to those multinational perspectives that always tended to evade a simple islander. My own ideals were tested and defended on a daily basis, as I was challenged by almost everyone, from German, Russian and Ghanaian classmates to Ambassadors and professors, who have time and again embraced the practical and academic realms of life. Paris' hard-knock life style, AGS' academic structure and my own drive to succeed have definitely provided me with the foundation to give working life the pursuit it deserves.quote right
