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.

Individual Counseling

When everything becomes too much, we have a sympathetic ear for you. We advise you on topics such as maternity leave and parental leave as well as on your options to reconcile your studies and family life.
