Studying with disabilities, chronic illness and in high-stress situations

According to the 20th Social Survey of the German Student Union, around 7% of students at German universities have a disability or chronic illness, which makes studying difficult. In addition to mobility or sensory impairment, many of the limitations mentioned by students are not immediately recognizable to fellow students or teachers (e.g. chronic somatic illness, mental health issues or partial performance disorders).

Before and during your studies, many questions and challenges can arise, but you may also encounter problems due to environmental barriers. The "FAQs for students with disabilities or chronic illness at the University of Applied Sciences provide answers to these questions.

The brochure "Psychotherapy options, assistance and reasonable adjustments for students" provides an overview of treatment options and support offered by the university for students with mental health problems.It also offers advice on how to deal with mental health issues.

The University of Applied Sciences Erfurt has set itself the goal of giving all students equal opportunities in their studies and removing all barriers to admission and academic progression. As part of the project Action Plan "FH Erfurt - an inclusive university the conditions for inclusion and infrastructural accessibility at the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt were comprehensively analyzed. This resulted in an action plan, which we will be implemented in the next few years.This was the first step towards creating inclusive learning and working conditions and barrier-free access.
