A student has basically two possibilities:
- You can work maximum 3 months full- time (in one year) without a limit for the income
- The second option: you can work part – time (but maximum 12 hours a week) and you are not allowed to earn more than €323 monthly.
In both cases the employer has to file a permission of employment ( Beschäftigungsbewilling) for the employee (=for you as a foreign student) at the local government institution. Actually you are not allowed to work in Austria without this permission of employment (Beschäftigungsbewilligung), except you work based on a contract for work (Werkvertrag). Be careful not every contract for work fulfills the legal requirements and will often grant you less rights.
