Disabled and chronically ill students face many challenges in their studies.
Successful studies of persons with disabilities often require a precise study planning, which has nothing in common with the general requirements of the graduate programme. For not in every course, necessary compensations for disadvantages of the disabled are considered in study/examination rules and the respective spatial situation.
We offer information and advice on the following topics:
- Special regulations BAföG
- Social welfare
- Health insurance
- Severely disabled identification card
Studying with Disabilities – Information and Advice Center (Informations- und Beratungsstelle Studium und Behinderung) is part of Deutsches Studentenwerk (DSW). As a nationwide competence centre on the subject of "Study and Disability", the IBS offers comprehensive information for prospective students and students with disabilities and chronic diseases
The universities have their own offices and representatives who can advise you on compensation for disadvantages, hardship arrangements, planning your course of study and many other topics.
