To kick off the semester, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is focusing on the topic of family. As part of “Digital Family Week”, the Family Support Centre would like to work with you to find answers to the extremely urgent question: How can you combine studies, career and family?

In the past year and a half, we have clearly experienced how challenging it can be to balance these areas of life and the responsibilities that go with them. This makes it all the more important to talk to each other and exchange experiences and information.

From 11 to 18 October 2021, you can look forward to various online events for getting to know each other, getting involved, finding out more and asking questions. Here is a selection:

  • Family, Care, and Career – A talk given by the Pflegestützpunkt Berlin-Mitte. Wednesday, 13 October, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. Please register here.
