Income of higher education students

As a student, student financial aid will be your primary source of income. If necessary, you can also receive a housing allowance and basic social assistance. If you fall ill for a longer period of time, you will be entitled to a sickness allowance. 

If you have a job at the time of your studies, you will pay taxes for your salary. Your study grant will affect the tax rate for your salary.
