Studying as a parent
It is important that studying with children works. On this page you can read what support is available as a parent or if you are expecting a child. Who should I, as a parent, contact about different matters?
KTH works to help you combine parenthood with studies. This means, for example, that teaching and examinations are primarily arranged within the framework of office hours, weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., to coincide with school and childcare hours.
Approved leave from studies and parental leave
If you have questions about parental leave and study leave, you need to contact your master coordinator. To ensure that you keep your place in your programme after your parental leave, you need to apply for a study leave. Please contact your master coordinator in good time.
Accessibility on KTH's premises
KTH has elevators, resting rooms and microwave ovens that are accessible to all students. There are no room for breast feeding at present.
KTH's facilities are primarily intended for students and staff. Please keep in mind that it should be a safe and calm study/working environment for everyone.
Changing tables are available in the following locations:
Contact the school's office of student affairs at the school offering the courses or programme you are studying to find out where more facilities such as resting rooms are available.
Child allowance and housing allowance
Child allowance is financial support that you, as a parent, receive when you care for your child. Normally, you are not entitled to temporary child allowance as a student. It may be possible to get a housing allowance for families with children.
For questions about childcare, contact your home municipality.
