Education System: International students typically choose between
There are many part time opportunities for students to work and earn money for their living. Students typically take up jobs in the institute, library or other facility at your university. Waiting on tables in cafés and pubs is another typical student job. There are few who accompany visitors at trade fairs, delivery jobs and cycle couriers and not the least cleaning, babysitting and working in copy shops etc. The chances of finding a part time increases if you ate able to speak to basic German. Students are allowed to work 120 full days or 240 half days per year while pursuing their studies. If any student lands up in a job as a student assistant or research assistant in any University, they will then have the privilege to extend the 120 days limit even. But it is not so easy and not everyone’s cup of tea.
