Germany is the most attractive study destination in Europe and the 4th most attractive study destination worldwide.
What makes Germany the perfect study location?
Compared to other European countries, the living costs in Germany are very moderate. Students benefit from a lot of concessions. You can receive reduced prices at theatres, museums, opera houses, cinemas, swimming pools and other institutions. All you have to do is present your student ID.
If you are a non-EU/EEA citizen with a residence permit for study purposes you are allowed to work for up to 120 full days (full day = 8 hours per day) or 240 half days (half day = 4 hours) during the calendar year. However, freelance work is not permitted.
If you are an EU/EEA citizen you have almost the same rights as a German citizen. You are allowed to work maximum 20 hours/week during the semester.
Internships that are mandatory for the successful completion of your studies do not count towards the above-mentioned 120 full days. Employment that is considered “student part-time work” can be done without any timely restriction. For detailed information, please contact the Foreigners' Registration Office.
