Studying with a child

Dear student parents of the UDE,

We have created a small collection of links for you to give quick answers to some important questions. In addition, you can see some of the many support and advice services that you can take advantage of as a student at the University of Duisburg-Essen. If these answers are not enough, you are also welcome to visit the office hours of the AStA Representatives for Social Policy or simply write us an email:
