For students with a disability or chronic illness, studying is often more difficult. Regulations on compensation for disadvantages are intended to ensure that these students have equal study and examination conditions. At the University of Würzburg, there is a central point of contact with the KIS - Contact and Information Center for Students with Disabilities and Chronic Illness. There you will find information on disadvantage compensation regulations and additional support options during your studies.
What options are there for admission to studies?
For cases of hardship, 2% of the study places of a study program are reserved. The course of study is not yet subject to admission restrictions. However, you must go through an aptitude test. If you have any questions regarding compensation for disadvantages in the aptitude procedure, you can contact KIS.
Which options are there for examinations in the course of study?
KIS will help you with regard to compensation for disadvantages in examinations. There you will find a corresponding "Information brochure on compensation for disadvantages". This also explains the areas of "diagnosed dyslexia and dyscalculia.
What should I consider and who are further contact persons?
In any case, we ask you to also contact the Faculty's Office of the Dean of Studies in order to plan concrete measures. The Faculty of Human Sciences has also appointed a representative for students with disabilities and chronic illnesses. KIS maintains an overview of all current faculty representatives at the University of Würzburg.
