Combining parenthood with doing a PhD often requires a great deal of flexibility and organizing ability, as well as reliable child care.

The University of Paderborn provides various facilities for young parents such as day-care or the possibility for temporary child care, special parent-child rest rooms, and a parents-service office. Furthermore, the University has initiated a project titled „science and paternity – collegial counselling for fathers and fathers-to-be in science“.

We are pleased to assist you, if desired.  

Here you can find full information (in German) concerning the support opportunities for parents.
