What are the conditions for access to work-study training for international students?

Students from the EU

French students or students living in the European Union are subject to the same rules for access to work-study training (apprenticeship contract - professional training contract - etc.). The restriction applies in particular to the maximum age. 

Non-EU students

The rules for non-EU students are slightly different but access to work-study training is mainly conditional on obtaining a residence permit that authorises them to work in France.

In fact: work-study programmes are treated as salaried activities and are therefore different from work placements.
