Students with Children

TU Dortmund University attaches great importance to creating good framework conditions that make it easier to combine studying with family responsibilities. Thus, you will also receive extensive support during your stay abroad at TU Dortmund University.

When planning your stay, it is important to discuss and arrange the best possible conditions for your child or children to accompany you. These can relate, for example, to accommodation or childcare. Your contact persons at TU Dortmund University will be happy to take time before and during your stay to discuss and implement your support.

The International Office is your primary contact in this regard as well. You are welcome to contact us before you apply in order to learn about the support options in your situation. You can also indicate whether you are in a special situation as part of your application so that we can provide you with the best possible support right from the start. Your information will allow us to clarify adequate accommodation in consultation with the Studierendenwerk Dortmund, if this is necessary in your case, as well as with our Family Service - preferably in a joint conversation with you - to discuss an initial assessment of the support options.

TU Dortmund University thus supports you extensively in the planning and implementation of your mobility, but cannot provide any financial support . Please contact the International Office of your home university in this regard, as outgoing students who would like to carry out their stay accompanied by their child(ren) may be able to apply for additional funding as part of their stay.
