Good to know - Germany

Finding your way around in a new country can be quite difficult at times. Our "Good to Know" information sessions aim to help you gain a better understanding of some important aspects of everyday life in Germany.

A variety of institutions with diverse objectives and interests characterise the German research landscape. In this seminar, participants will learn about the German higher education system, non-university research institutions as well as possible entry positions and funding opportunities for international junior scientists. In addition, the seminar will also present career prospects beyond research positions.

Lecturer: Uta Brunner (JUNO)

Germany has a reputation for having one of the best social security systems in the world. At its core, the social security system is based on five pillars: health insurance, long-term care insurance, pension insurance, unemployment insurance and accident insurance.

But how does the system actually work? Which insurances are available for international researchers? What differences apply to researchers with a work contract and those with a scholarship? What are the benefits of statutory health insurance? What do you need to consider when seeing a doctor? Which additional private insurances are beneficial for international researchers? All these questions will be addressed in this information session. Furthermore, the event will provide time to address participants' individual questions.

Researchers from non-EU countries must apply for a residence permit at the Immigration Office. The correct residence permit depends on your individual situation. Among other things, your monthly income and whether you have an employment contract with the university or receive a scholarship all determine which type of residence permit you require or are able to obtain. Some residence permits are more favourable than others in terms of qualification for a permanent settlement permit in Germany or mobility rights in other EU countries. This information event will give participants an overview of the different residence permits for researchers and help them find out which residence permits they are entitled to.
