Work while study
International students are generally not allowed to engage in any form of employment, whether paid or unpaid, or in any business, profession or occupation in Singapore during the validity of their Student's Pass unless they have the consent in writing from the Controller of Immigration.

The exceptions are for full-time undergraduates of Polytechnics and Universities that are allowed to work part-time of up to 16 hours per week during school term. However, they need to obtain permission from the Student's Liaison/Affairs Office of their respective Polytechnics and Universities. During their vacations, they are allowed to work full-time as the Ministry of Manpower has exempted them from applying for work permits.

In addition, foreign students who are full-time matriculated or registered students of institutions approved by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) are exempted from the Work Permit regulations. They can work part-time during term time for less than 16 hours per week, as well as full-time during school vacation period.

Before you look for part-time or vacation employment, please gather more details, ensure you meet the conditions and seek prior approval from the approved institutions. Sometimes, the employer may require a letter of authorisation from the approved institutions to indicate that the students are allowed to work during the school holiday
