Part-time jobs

German students often work part-time in addition to their studies to earn some extra money. If you are planning on doing the same, please be aware that there are very strict rules for foreign students. Please check what you are legally allowed to do before taking up any work. Also, please be aware that it is impossible to finance your stay and studies completely by a part-time job – studying in Germany takes a lot of time.
