Students at Work

The “Students at Work” project (SAW) is an advisory service of the German Trade Union Youth (DGB-Jugend) for students who work while studying. Whether you have questions concerning a job contract, payment in case of illness, different types of work (Mini-Midijob, self-employed, etc.), social insurance or tax law, or whether you have questions regarding internships or other sources to finance your studies, SAW helps you along and provides you with further assistance.

You can find comprehensive information on the topic on the internet platform or face-to-face:
