- Q: What is a working student position?
A: Working student positions must not be confused with internships or the possibility of writing a final thesis. Working students are students who are enrolled at a university/Fachhochschule/etc. and who are employed in a reasonably long, fixed-term position parallel to their studies. This employment usually takes place directly on the company's premises. A working student's main focus remains their studies, which is why, during term-time, working students are not allowed to work more than 20 hours per week. Therefore, working students usually work near their place of study, so they can combine studying and employment.
Working students can be employed in the company for the duration of their course of study. Thanks to the relatively long period of employment, working students can acquire a much greater understanding of the company’s processes and structures.
They have an employment contract, and are subject to the applicable professional and pay scale conditions. As with other employees, they are employed to perform specific activities.
