Getting a job

A good way to help pay for your studies and cover your living expenses is to work part-time.

At Informagiovani, an office of Modena's Town Council, you can find information on jobs offered by companies or temporary employment agencies.

The online notice board of job postings (in Italian) is regularly updated.

Reggio Emilia has its own Informagiovani office giving information on job opportunities for students.

Opportunities for part-time work within the University

Students can apply for part-time work, at a rate of €7.75 an hour, within the University. Part-time work placements for students are known as Collaborazioni studentesche retribuite (150 ore).

Applications for part-time work can be submitted to ER.GO once a year (usually before the start of the academic year). Application notices are in Italian only. If you need assistance, you can contact the local ER.GO offices.

For more information, see the ER.GO website or write to:
The ER.GO call center can be reached at +39 051 6436900 (Mon-Fri; 9 a.m - 4 p.m.).

Your Student VISA will allow you to work up to 20 hours per week during the academic year. Part-time work is an ideal way to earn extra money without interfering excessively with your studies.
