Working in Germany After Your Studies - How does it work?

With a successful degree from a German university, you have numerous opportunities in the German and worldwide job market:

BTU alumni from non-EU countries can obtain a 18-month job seeking residence permit to search for a suitable job after completing their studies. During this time, working anywhere is allowed to ensure a livelihood. Students from EU member states, the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland can work in Germany without restriction during and after their studies.

Where do I search for a job in Germany?

The Internet portal "Link zu einer externen Seite Make it in Germany"
