Doing a doctorate and being a parent - a challenge for international PhD students

Regulars` table informs about child care possibilities in Chemnitz on July, 3rd

Doing a PhD is a challenge for all doctorate students, especially if they are parents. For successful studies it is important to find suitable child care and to develop an efficient time management. However, what if the international doctorate is not familiar with the German child care system? Which options of child care are offered? How to apply for a child care place? How does the allocation of places work and what are the costs of daily child care? The first regulars` table for international PhD students of Chemnitz University of Technology will answer questions like those.

The regulars` table will take place in the bar "Ausgleich” in the cafeteria (Reichenhainer Straße 55) on Wednesday, 3rd July 2013 at 5pm. Mrs Marion Forberg, Head of the department "Day care centres”, of the Youth and Family Office of the city of Chemnitz, and Mr Jörg Seidel, Head of Consulting/Culture/Public Relations at the Student Union Chemnitz-Zwickau, will inform the participants about their possibilities concerning child care and further support. Subsequently, the international doctorate students are welcome to exchange experiences with the speakers and amongst each other as well as to get into conversation with the staff of the International Office.

PhD students who are interested in joining the event are asked to contact the International Office via e-mail ( for binding registration until Monday, 1st July.
