Hi, I am gonna start my Electrical Engineering degree next year. Studying in Germany is free, in other words, you only pay around 200 $ as a semester fee and that's it. No tuition ...etc I will also get a student load called "Bafög" which is roughly 650 $ a month to cover living costs. The city I am heading to complete my degree in is not that cheap and the 650 $ will probably not be enough and therefore I should get a Mini-Job. Do you work alongside studying ? I know that most students do but considering an engineering degree, I just think it requires more studying-time than other majors and am a bit concerned about this. I would appreciate sharing your situation, this way I can see it from different points of view. Also, please share your experience about how you organize your time and keep it balanced.
