Pregnancy or parenthood? Discuss the situation with your study adviser

We recommend making an appointment with your study adviser at an early stage of your pregnancy in order to discuss the need and options for adjustments to your degree programme. This can also be useful for students who are mothers or fathers. Student parents can also seek help from the study adviser in exceptional situations, for example if they are at risk of a study completion delay due to the illness of their child. 

Study completion delays due to pregnancy: financial assistance

If you are falling behind as a result of pregnancy or childbirth and meet the relevant preconditions, you will be eligible to receive financial assistance from the university through the Profiling Fund. This assistance will be provided for a maximum of four months. 

If you are not entitled to student grants or are receiving less than you need to cover the cost of your studies, you can apply to a private fund following a recommendation from a Student Counsellor.
