Maternity Protection (Act)
Since January 01st, 2019 the Maternity Protection Act also applies to female students. From 2019 on, all students who get pregnant are obligated to notify the university of their pregnancy. Thus, please contact the Student’s Secretary Office of TU Clausthal.
The Maternity Protection Act applies to all expectant mothers and begins 6 weeks before the estimated due date and usually ends 8 weeks after the actual due date (for multiple births or premature births 12 weeks after childbirth).
