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 leftFrom current issues in the Middle East taught together by an Iranian historian and an Israelli journalist, to NGO management taught by the director of Human Rights Watch in France, every class was fascinating and taught by some of the most impressive people I could ever have imagined. I immediately felt at home in this small but active AGS community because, although students and professors are all from different parts of the world, everyone takes the time to understand each other's perspective. Overall, I would recommend AGS to anyone with a thirst for intellectual stimulation and a drive to not only understand the world of international relations, but engage in it..quote right
