Cross-University Information Session on Studying and Family Obligations
Students who have to organize course schedules and study groups while raising children or caring for relatives face special challenges. The Family Offices of Universität Hamburg, the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) and Studierendenwerk Hamburg host an annual cross-university information session on studying while caring for children or relatives. Students who are parents, parents-to-be, or caregivers will be given an overview of how best to organize their studies while ensuring their families’ financial security. We also give talks and provide an opportunity for exchange.
The next session on the topic will take place on 21 November 2022 from 10 am to 12:30 pm.
