Study, child and family

Combining studying and bringing up a child is a special challenge for studying parents. The University of Erfurt has therefore set itself the goal of providing the best possible support for mothers and fathers nurturing  their children.

Support for students with children

As a student, can I even afford to have a child? What possibilities are there for support and financial assistance? Who will help me with the application? You can find answers to these questions on our information page "Financing and Funding".

Study abroad with child

Are you planning to study abroad with a child? The Internet portal www.auslandsstudium-mit-kind.de provides practical information on the organization, financing and implementation as well as reports from student parents worldwide. The International Office of the University of Erfurt will also be happy to advise you.

Care of relatives

We are also happy to support and advise students on the subject of caring for relatives. The Department 1: Registrar's Office provides information, for example on questions of leave of absence and the possibility of deferring long-term study fees. For competent and quick help in coping with everyday life with relatives in need of care, we continue to recommend the "Pflegenetz Erfurt".
