Work contract for students

Around 70% of all students work alongside their studies to make a living. A quarter of working students work up to 20 hours a week and 11% even up to 35 hours a week. Very few students go to work because they want to gain work experience, but because they are financially dependent on this income. Most of the earnings are spent on rent.

Observe regulations

Important: Anyone who receives study grants or other study grants must observe the additional income limit. Regardless of the type of employment, your earnings must not exceed the limit of 10,000 euros per year. Otherwise, grants and grants can be reduced or canceled. If you have children or have to pay maintenance, the limit moves upwards.

Full-time job and study

Perhaps you are not even looking for a part-time job because you are studying full-time, but the opposite is the case: You are fully employed and are now looking for a study model with which you can continue to work and still study. Many universities and technical colleges offer these possibilities and there are different variants of part-time studies. Which shape you choose depends on your type. With distance learning, you learn on your own and can organize your time yourself. You have more obligations in an evening course, for example, where you have to appear at the seminars at set times. We have put together more information on this topic for you in our "Part-time studies" section.
