Disabilities

The University of Passau offers individual consultations to students with disabilities in all phases of their studies. According to a survey conducted by the Deutsches Studentenwerk (Student Services Association) in 2011, 8% of students at German universities are disabled or chronically ill, i.e. affected by visible or invisible impairments. These include:

  • Mobility impairments
  • Visual impairments
  • Hearing impairments
  • Speech impairments
  • Chronic diseases (e.g. rheumatism, Crohn's disease, diabetes)
  • Dyslexia or other partial performance disorders (e.g. ADHD)
  • Mental illnesses (e.g. eating disorders, depression)

Personal consultations

Your contact person at the University, Dr Ulrike Bunge, will be happy to advise you personally on all questions concerning applying for access arrangements. If you have any special needs, please contact us. Together, we will try to find a solution tailored to your personal needs.

Please note that applications for access arrangements must be submitted in good time, i.e. in November for the winter semester or in May for the summer semester.
