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. 

*Due to the circumstances caused by the corona pandemic, the information events will be held online.

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)

Depending on their source of income, international researchers living in Germany can be subject to German income tax. This information session will give an overview of the most important aspects of the German income tax for expats and try to tackle the most common questions arising such as: Do I have to pay income taxes? Do I need to make an income tax declaration? When do l have to file my tax return and how? Do I also have to pay taxes in my home country?

A Q&A session will be allocated at the end so as to tend to your personal questions. You are most welcome to send in any specific questions or areas you are interested in prior to the session.

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.
