Student Jobs

Please note that a good knowledge of German (B1/B2) is often required for student jobs within the university and in town.

University Jobs


An ideal way to add to your student experience is to look for a student job within our university. Students sometimes find work in either central institutions of the university, or in selected projects in their faculty or in other working capacities at a professor's office.

Open positions are usually announced on job boards at secretary offices in your faculty, on other notice-boards throughout the university or at Infosys

We advise you to also establish personal contact with professors working in your area of interest as well as with staff members at the university.

Student Jobs in Town


Quite a few of our students work part-time in cafésbars or restaurants in town. Students also have the option to assist at fairs or in private families (e.g. baby sitting, shopping etc.). Students can also help out at our weekly fruit-, vegetable- and flower market. 

Open positions are typically announced in local newspapers (e.g. Emder Zeitung) as well as on black boards in local supermarkets. We also advise you to inquire in person at  local businesses
