Studying with children at TU Darmstadt

Students with children sometimes have specific questions and wishes that can be taken up in an interactive Moodle-course. This course offers up to date information about organising your studies, child care and counseling services. In forums experiences can be shared and networks built.

Since the start of the Moodle-course an extensive “wiki” with a lot of information has been assembled and users can add interesting issues about family and studies.

This platform is organized by Gabriele Pfeiffer () from the servicepoint part time studies and studying with children with children, who offers advice on organizing studies with family responsibilities.

Trough the Professor Sorin Huss Fonds students can receive fiancial support for childcare costs. Further information can be found here.

Since the start of 2018 the new Maternity Protection Act (MuSchuG) also applies to students. Detailed information for pregnant and breastfeeding people can be found here.
