Services for students with a disability or (chronic) illness

It is estimated that there are more than 3,000 students at the University of Tübingen whose ability to study is affected by illness and/or disability. In order to support such students, the University of Tübingen offers special counseling services that can be used at any stage of studies, or even before the start of studies.

Topics for consultation

We can support you in deciding on the appropriate type of study and university, in planning and organizing your studies, and in answering questions about possible alternatives. There is also the option of counseling in personally difficult situations. Important topics may also include financing your studies, getting access to necessary tools and resources, finding suitable housing, and assistance in everyday study routines. If you need an individual adjustment of study conditions, you can apply for disadvantage compensation ("Nachteilsausgleich"). Counseling is voluntary, confidential and open-ended.

You can find other consultation topics that may be relevant to you and other students before and during your studies here.
