The EEA (European Economic Area) contains all 28 EU-countries + Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. If you belong to this category, you have the same rights and duties as students with the Belgian nationality. This means you do not need a work permit.
Note that every student who stays in Belgium for longer than 3 months needs to register at the foreigner's office of the city hall of the commune where you live in order to get a national number. The national number is obligatory if you want to apply for a student job.

⦁ You can only work 475 hours a year (calendar, not academic year!) with this
