  • Childcare in order to pass examinations in short time, or to finish studies;
  • Childcare while participating in academic conferences and university eventsopened to the public.

For reimbursement, please submit completed form (download) together with the original receipt for childcare service (the receipt needs to include name and address of the carer) to Family Representative.
