In certain cases, specific life circumstances can threaten to make studying unusually difficult, for instance for students who…

  … have a disability or chronic illness; or

  … have young children to look after; or

  … are providing nursing care for close relatives.

The university offers several support structures to help such students to cope with their studies, for instance with regard to advisory services, timetable planning, etc. If you are facing such a case of hardship, please contact the Zentrale Studienberatung [de] for further information.

Please check the site Registration to learn about special consideration for cases of hardship with respect to course allocation or compensating measures for specific types of exams.

Students who are parents are encouraged to consult the website of the University’s office for equality to learn about support services available to them.
