Work permit for non-EU students

Hi everyone,
I finally got to Switzerland to start school less than two months ago. My visa approval came late, and I started school 3 weeks late.
I recently got a part-time job offer that I am very interested in. The employer is happy to apply a work permit for me. But since I am a student still I can only work part time or for an internship, right?
I also read that I could only start working after being in Switzerland for 6 months, which means I can't start till April 8th? They want me to start end of January, which is the end of a semester.
I also read somewhere that the 6 months is a flexible time frame which usually refers to as a semester. Does that mean I can start working at the end of the semester?
I would love some advice here.
Thank you.

Congratuations on getting it all sorted out. Talk to the university and the cantonal migration office regarding when you can start working. They have to give permission so they're the best people to ask.

Re: Work permit for non-EU students

Thank you! I emailed the international office, the department secretary as well as Migration office. Let's wait to hear from them.
I really want to work for this company and the job relates to my study and what I want to do in the future.

Re: Work permit for non-EU students

you can do internship as i did. you do not need to wait for 6/12 months for an internship. but if you want to part-time work then yes you have to wait some time but for internship, you will need a confirmation letter by your university regarding the internship is useful (not only mandatory) for you. If you have tihs confirmation letter from the dean (maybe other), you can apply to the permission for the internship.

You can max work 15 hours per week (i think all cantons have this rule), actually i was working 16hours 24 min per week and was not problem but behind of ausweis was written "can work 15 hrs/per week."

good luck

Re: Work permit for non-EU students

Is it an internship or a part-time job? The two are really quite different and there's two different processes involved for the permit.
