Those who study with a handicap are not alone.
About 11 percent of all students have a disability and/or chronic illness that makes it difficult for them to study. Of these, 47 percent suffer from a mental illness, according to the results of the 21st Social Survey of the German Studentenwerk.
Are you one of them? We can advise you on all questions concerning the organisation of your studies and your everyday life. Together with the representatives of the university and the university of applied sciences, we also support you in compensating for disadvantages.
You can also find a lot of helpful information on the topic of studying with a handicap at the German Studentenwerk (DSW). The handbook "Studying with a Disability" covers all important topics from preparing for your studies to starting your career. Our guide for students with disabilities/chronic illnesses (download below) provides information on all contact persons and institutions for students with disabilities.
