Advising for (Expecting) ParentsCopyright: Benedikt Biesemeier
The RWTH Aachen Family Services Center supports all members of the university in matters of family and the compatability of studies, career, research, and family. Our comprehensive advising services are not only offered to parents or expecting parents, but also to individuals and couples without children, who would like to plan their further career track and simultaneously start a family.
We would be happy to advise you on the topics of:
- Maternity rights and paid maternity leave
- Family leave
- Paid parental leave and "ElterngeldPlus"
- Financial aid for families
- Child care options
- Living in Aachen as a family
- Families at RWTH Aachen
All topics and contents discussed during consultation are treated confidentially. In order to offer individual advice, we would ask you to schedule an appointment previously. Our offices are child-friendly equipped so that you may bring your child at any time to the consultation meeting.
