Pursuing a doctoral degree when you have one or more children poses challenges beyond just the question of childcare. Organization of daily life and finances also play a central role. Helpful information on organizing daily life, finances, childcare, as well as options for handling travel abroad as a parent can be found in the guidebook Pursuing a Doctorate in Leipzig: A Guide for Doctoral Researchers.

The Office for Equal Opportunities at Leipzig University also provides detailed information and consultation.

In addition, Leipzig Student Services and the Student Council have special consultation services for students and doctoral researchers with children.

The Research Academy Leipzig offers its members childcare for children up to three years of age and flexible childcare for events.
