Examinations

No matter which program you are enrolled in: It is always challenging to master lectures, seminars, term papers, and other examinations. This holds even more true if you have children and bear family responsibilities. In order to help you reconcile your studies and family life, the University of Mannheim offers various options.

  • Requests for particular situations

    Are you caring for a relative or do you have a child? Your studies also require you to work hard. In order to master the balancing act between family life and studying, the act on the higher education institutions in the Land of Baden-Württemberg (LHG) and the respective examination regulations allow for alternative options in particular situations, mostly by means of individual decisions. The examination committees of the schools and the Central Examination Committee are happy to advise you in advance.

    We recommend that you inform yourself about your options as early on as possible. This gives us enough time to answer all your questions and talk about your options.

  • Advice and support provided by the Studierendenwerk Mannheim

    Money is often tight for students. Find out more about the various advisory services for student parents in the link overview of the social counseling services offered by the Studierendenwerk.
