Fighting for Pass Is the study in Germany Motto
Many reasons why people want to study in Germany.

Part-time Work While Studying

However, there are many limitations that must be learned before applying for a job there. Generally, international students are limited to the number of hours worked during the week should not be more than 20 hours. In addition, pay attention to the visa that you have, whether you can go to college while working because there are many regulations in each sector.
Because to be able to graduate at a university in Germany is quite difficult as discussed above, so as not to interfere with the concentration of learning, you should desire to work part-time on hold first unless you really need income to live there. Study in Germany can be said to be more difficult than in other foreign countries, the level of competition is quite tight and assessment during college is not easy.
