All over Germany about 5% of the students are parents, which means, there are in average nearly 700 studying parents at the University of Rostock. Coordinating both – university and family – is not always easy. This is the reason why we have the department “Studies and Family”, which is represented by Katja since the beginning. She herself is a mother, which makes it easier for her to understand your struggles. It is all about networking, advice and lobby work at the university. If you have any questions, ideas, criticism or you just want to connect with others, please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org Throughout the year we have events for studying parents and their children. The next events can be viewed in our calendar or the facebook page of the AStA.
