Employment opportunities in Germany
Germany is a popular study-abroad destination for international students who are wanting to pursue undergraduate or graduate studies. Germany is home to many national and global companies offering countless job opportunities to international students. International students from other countries (Non-EU and EEA) are allowed to work part-time in Germany alongside their studies for 120 full days or 240 half days per year (20 hours per week). On average, a student earns anywhere between 5 to 15 euros an hour and approximately 450 euros a month.
The majority of students prefer to work after completing their studies in Germany. International students who wish to stay back and work after finishing their studies can do so for up to 18 months to seek employment. In this case, the student needs to apply for a German Residence permit that would allow them to take up gainful employment in the country.
