During your studies

We recommend that all new students visit the special events that are offered to ease into life at the university. By the way - during this orientation phase we also offer a round table discussion on the topic of “Studying with Health Issues/ a disability.”

If you are concerned with the questions below or if you have similar questions, we invite you to make an appointment for a personal consultation with Mrs. Bürger.

  • How binding is the standard period of study?
  • How do I plan my studies if I need more time?
  • How do I “excuse” myself in case of illness?
  • How can I take my exams as a blind person?
  • What are equality measures?

These and many other questions can be answered quickly and individually during a personal conversation. We can also include other services, such as mental health counseling or departmental advising.

Ensure equal access by planning your studies carefully.

The first weeks of the semester are over and you know your schedule for tests, presentations, papers or oral exams. Now is the time to look into the available equality measures.

  • What are equality measures? Or: Do these measures make studying easier?
  • Who is eligible for equality measures?
  • How do I prove eligibility?
  • What are the concrete equality measures?

Please refer to the special pages about individual equality measures for further information. Together with Mrs. Bürger students with a disability, a chronic illness or a mental health issue can identify adequate and individual arrangements. And once more we ask you not to hold back with your questions!

Counseling and service are important to us

Therefore we want to make you aware of additional counseling and advising services within and outside our university.

Providing services for our students is also central to what we do at the computer Center, ZIM and at the library. This applies especially to questions and requests by students with health issues/ disabilities.
