Part-Time Work Options for international students going to study in Germany.

Another #thread

Retweet someone from your list might just be applying to study in Germany without your knowledge.
Wondering about work options during your studies in Germany... here I will explore the many jobs you can take up. I understand there are many consideration that affect a students decision to choose a country... Jobs are very important for international students
Before we move forward, I must mention there are two aspects to part-time work. One being the eligibility and laws relevant to part time works options for international students

As an international students, you are allowed to take up part time employment along with ur studies
Things you need to keep in mind though:
1. You can work for a total of 120 full or 240 half days in a year as a student. However, might vary. If your university is in a city which has high unemployment rates, or more manpower, you will get a work permit of more than 120 days.
2. Usually, as per university norms, a student would not be allowed to work for more than 20 hours in a week during terms. Students, however, can take up full-time employment during vacations.
3. A work permit in Germany from the "Agentur Fur Arbeit" ( Meaning federal employment agency) and the foreigners authority is required. The permit would definitely have details of maximum limit of work a student can take up.
4. For those who are enrolled in a preparatory course or language courses, the regulations are tighter o. As such, you are allowed only to work during the lecture free periods and only with explicit permission to do so from the foreign authority.
5. Working for more than 20 hours a week is generally not advised. Not only is it against most university rules, working more than this limit would require you to pay health insurance.
6. Taxation is another concern for me. A student earning less than €450 (190k )a month need not to pay any taxes/social security contribution. Also, if you work for less than 50 continuous days over period of one year, you are exempt as well.
7. When it comes to working within the university, to be honest, the working hours and wages are completely differently. In fact guys, they are far better and you can work for long hours as well. You'll be lucky to get a job in the university. It's not easy.
8. I know most Africans don't want to obey laws... compliance with the federal laws in Germany is extremely important o. Please! If you are found to be flouting them, you can have problems. So, keep it in check biko. Your residence permit is more important
A. Teaching/Graduate/Research Assistants at the University. This jobs are open to research scholars and pay decent enough cash. You have to be really good and apply early to get one. These jobs are advertised on the University notice boards and with department
B. SUPPORT STAFF/WAITERS AT CAFE'S, BARS: Waiting or catering assignments are really the most famous jobs among students. Many students out for this for more reasons than money. It gives you a great opportunity to explore the city, meet new people. The pay might not be great.
C. ENGLISH TUTORS: This another lucrative job opportunity for international students in Germany to teach English to German students. There are often private tutoring and is a decent payout. Remember, you have to be proficient in English.
D. INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION ASSISTANTS: This is a well paying job and good option if you're looking for experience. Germany gives you a post study work permit with your student visa. Finding this kind of job could lead to a career in Germany. Best place to check is local newspapers
E. HOW MUCH DO THEY PAY? The earnings you can expect from these part time jobs as a student, on the average, between 6 to 15 euros an hour and roughly around 450 euros a month. Usually wages are higher in big cities like Munich, Berlin or Frankfurt.
Just got the record and advice, I would do say, part-time jobs are not a way to pay for your studies. It can be a good source of pocket money and maybe socialization. You can succeed if you're wise and less troublesome.

Thank you.
