Students with disabilities

Questions related to studies

Pursuant to section 2(5) of the Hochschulrahmengesetz and the corresponding laws of the Länder, the duties of the universities include taking into account the special needs of disabled students. It follows from this that study and examination regulations must be designed in such a way that students with disabilities also find appropriate conditions.

Applicants and students with disabilities should in any case contact the representative for disability issues at their own university as early as possible in order to discuss the necessity, nature and extent of compensation for disadvantages and to enforce their claims. The design of the compensation measures should always be regulated individually. They must be applied for. Possible forms of disadvantage compensation are:


  • written supplements to oral examinations for hearing impaired students or students with speech impairments
  • Time extension for homework, exams etc.
  • Extension of the examination time if interruptions in examination preparations were necessary due to poor health.

Furthermore, special financial regulations for students with disabilities and/or chronic illness must be observed:
