Students who have a child under the age of 10 and are entitled to a government grant under the BAföG regulations will receive a childcare supplement in the amount of 150 euros per month. Application forms are available online or at the Seezeit service center located in the dining hall (Mensa). You will also obtain first advice there.
No other financial support especially for student parents is available. However, various funding measures or offers exist for parents in general, for students in general and for anyone in a financial emergency situation. They are described in chapter 4 of the brochure. In particular, we would like to point out the information about possible children's allowance (Kinderzuschlag) as described in 4.4 and about possible subsidies towards the costs of childcare as described in 4.6.
In cases of particular hardship, students can apply to the student services organization Studierendenwerk Seezeit for interim financial support.
