How much can a student earn?

Hi all,

I am from Russia and I really would like to study at ETH. I've done some research about it and what I've found out is it will cost me a lot of money.

After getting my first high degree I was lucky to get a really well paid job here in Russia. So I have a significant sum of money (according to the Russian standards of living) on my account.

I've carefully read most all threads about cost of living and come to the result, that it's OK to survive in Zurich on 1800 CHF/month.

Following my calculations savings I have will cover about one year of living in Zurich excluding a tuition fee.

Next two years are on my family but, to be perfectly honest, they are extremely unhappy to finance my second high degree, especially as 1800 CHF/month is great money for them. So they hope that I will get a job to be able to cover some part of expenses by myself.

I've looked through a lot of job offers on the sites:


And here is what I've got:

-) there is not a lot of student jobs offers in Zurich
-) still no idea, how much can I earn working 15 hours/week.

I've tried the Salarium, and it have given me result, that working 15 hours/week brings me 1000 - 1500 CHF/month.

Now I'm very concern about that. Could anybody be so kind to explain me how much can a student earn working part time during the semester? Is it difficult to find any 15 hours/week job in Zurich?

Thank you very much.
