Pregnancy and parenthood while you are studying

If you are pregnant or combining your studies with parenthood, it is a good idea to discuss with a member of the student guidance and support staff how to combine these things with your studies. Below we list various facilities and give other information for pregnant students and students who already have children, as well as the contact person you can address your questions to.

Pregnant? Talk to your study adviser

If you get pregnant, it is important that you make an appointment with the study adviser of your degree programme as soon as possible to see whether adjustments need to be made to your curriculum. It might also be important to establish contact with your study adviser if you are a student-parent. You might want to discuss whether adjustments may be made to your curriculum, or that your child is sick and that this might cause a study delay.

Facilities for expressing breast milk

There are rooms at the university that mothers may use for expressing breast milk. The options available vary from one campus to the other. Please contact your study adviser for the options available for your degree programme.

Financial support

Profiling Fund

If your pregnancy or the birth of your child causes a delay in your study progress, and if you meet the criteria, you may qualify for financial support from the university. The basic principle is that this support is given for up to 4 months. Make an appointment with a student counsellor to discuss this.
