Your First Point of ContactFamily Service for Employees of the University
With its family service, the University of Duisburg-Essen contributes to making it easier for its employees to combine an academic career or professional activity with family life. The main focus of the family service office is to provide professional advice on the topic of family and career, to find caregivers, and to develop and implement its own care projects.
Our flex-care offer provides further support in reconciling family and career & studies. Flex-care is aimed at all members (employees and students) of the UDE and enables a need-based and hourly care for children outside of the regular care in daycare centers or childcare. Parents can choose between the babysitting service and the back-up care.
When professors are appointed, the career opportunities for their partner are often a decisive factor.
With the Dual Career Service, we offer a contact point that provides information for dual-career couples and offers support and assistance in the search for an adequate position or follow-up opportunities for the chosen career path for the partner of the professor to be appointed.
Student parents have many complex questions about the compatibility and financing of studies and family. The social counseling center provides professional, quick and uncomplicated advice.
