Job Opportunity Potential

Extra income and work experience

Working during your studies
Many students work alongside their studies in Germany. International students are also entitled to seek employment. However, the regulations that apply here are different for international students.

Basic conditions
International students may generally work in addition to studying. Students from the EU and the EEC have the same status as German students. They are free to work in Germany without any restrictions.

120 day rule
Students from non-EU countries may work 120 full days or 240 half days per year. In addition, employment as a student assistant at the University is permitted and is not counted towards the 120 full or 240 half working days. For all employment activities that go beyond this scope, students must apply for an employment permit with the immigration authorities or the Federal Employment Agency. The employment permit is only granted if this does not have adverse effects on the applicant’s studies. A half working day is defined as four or five hours of work in one day. Whether a half day is four or five hours depends on the working hours of the permanent staff at the company you work for. If staff have a regular working day of eight hours, then a half working day is defined as four hours. If the full working day lasts ten hours, then a half working day is defined as five hours.

Continuous short-term employment
If the hours you work are not spread out over a longer period of time, but instead you work for a continuous period such as over the semester break, only the days on which you have actually worked count towards the period of employment. Weekends on which you do not work are therefore not counted.

Please also note the following:

  • The 120 day rule must be taken seriously. The employment regulations for international students are very strict. You may be deported if you breach these regulations.
  • In general, working time per semester should not exceed 20 hours per week, as otherwise you become liable to pay contributions towards state pension insurance.
  • Both students from the EU and students from non-EU countries may work a maximum of 19 hours per week during the lecture period. There are only a few limitations during the semester break (see above).
