Combining studies and family life

Raising a child or caring for a family member while successfully studying is a balancing act. This can lead to many questions: How can I organize and schedule my studies? When does it make sense to study part-time or take a leave of absence? What financial aid is available? Students who have to fulfill family demands aside from their studies can take advantage of several suitable services at TU Berlin that help them to master these situations successfully. 

Studying as a parent

The Academic Advising Service at TU Berlin offers students who are parents an overview of both university and non-university support services as well as advising on how to best combine studies with parental obligations.

Studying and caring for relatives

The Family Services Office is the central point of contact for all TU Berlin employees and students with questions about combing studies/work and family life.
