Studying while caring for family? It’s possible!"


‘Studying with children or other care obligations’ – What support does FHV offer?

Combining a degree with family can be just as difficult as combining a career with family. Students and employees rely on family-friendly structures to succeed in this. We find it important that we continue developing these structures.

Designation as family-friendly university

Our university has been awarded three distinctions for creating family-friendly structures:

  • ‘Family-friendly university’ by the Federal Ministry for Family and Youth
  • ‘Outstanding family-friendly organisation’ by the State of Vorarlberg
  • 3rd place: National Award ‘Company for families’
