Fill your pockets while you fill your brain

By Anusha

Is Germany your pick for studying abroad? Have you been thinking about a channel from which you could add some money into your pockets along with your studies? Then here is a tip or two about the ways you can have an income while you are a student out there.

First thing's first:

Almost everything in this world comes with "conditions applied", this too must have some rules to be followed, and here they are:


* If you belong to an underdeveloped country then you are required to have "student visa". This is a residency permit that will let you work and again, this has certain fixed conditions that needs to be followed.

* There certainly is a check on the number of hours that you can work, however it is most apt for students though, as they are working part-time.

* How much do you earn? Well the companies pay something lesser than 400 Euros per month, which cannot be trusted as a source of funding the studies, however, this sum that you ear is not entitled for tax payment.

* There is a certain card called the "Social Security Card", which bears a "Social Security Number" which has to be available with the students when they get their first job. The first employer should apply for this card and it will last you as long as you live!

* If you do not want to be chucked out of Germany then you will have to follow the "Labour Laws" meant for foreign students, and mind you they are strict!
