Equal opportunities is one of the highest goals of the KU. In order to ensure that students with children do not suffer any disadvantages, there is a wide range of offers. Here we have compiled an overview of these measures and the most important contact points for students with family responsibilities.

You find an overview of these measures in the  booklet "Studying with child" (in German language only).

The KU's guideline (in German language only) on family friendly regulations for students also contains important information.

"Studying and caring for relatives". The guidebook (in German language only) answers the most important questions about support services for caring students.
