Studying with a child or children

und auch Studierende, die Angehörige pflegen


IMPORTANT! The new Maternity Protection Act applies from 01.01.2018. All female students who become pregnant or are already pregnant from 2018 are obliged to notify the university of their pregnancy. Please contact Ms. Balthaus for this purpose.


If you are studying and raising children at the same time, it is doubly difficult. There is a permanent lack of time to do justice to both your studies and your children.

This is where we want to help! I would like to try to create individual study plans for you in which there are no or very few clashes between childcare time and lectures.

Please contact me!

Further offers and interesting news, such as childcare , can be found on the Family Services homepage.

The Studierendenwerk Ostniedersachsen is also there to help you. Here you can find lots of information about studying with children:


We are also available as a point of contact for students who are caring for relatives. Please contact us so that we can find a solution together.
