Work while studying

Students from non-European countries are allowed to work either 120 whole days or 240 half days annually. The 120-day rule is not affected by mandatory internships and/or student assistance jobs at university. Students from EU Member countries, the European economic area (EWR) and Switzerland can work without restrictions during their study in Germany.

Here you can find offers for student jobs and internships:
- Mini-jobs and Internships in Germany on the Employment Webseite
- Internships abroad through the Leonardobüro
- Student Employment at the BTU (in German)

- The Job Agency also facilitates part time jobs for students

For duties and income limitations in mini-jobs visit Minijob-Zentrale.
