Working alongside your Studies

In Germany it is perfectly normal for students to work alongside their studies and a lot of students have part-time jobs. You also have the chance to take up part-time work as an international student in Germany and earn some money to support yourself financially.

The International Office does not offer a job placement service. However, we have put a lot of information together to help you search for a job.
