Adjustments to compensate for disabilities/impairments

Arzt

Students with disabilities of any kind – be it wheelchair users or students with walking or visual impairments but also students with allergies, food intolerances, dyslexia, or learning difficulties – can contact the officer for students with disabilities for advice on all issues concerning their studies and examinations or in connection with any other problems they may encounter.

 

General information

Should a permanent or prolonged disability or equivalent impairment prevent students from sitting examinations, attending courses or completing assessments that are required during their course of study, they can apply for adjustments to compensate for the disability with regard to the respective examination(s). They send their application to the chairperson of the board of examiners of their degree program.

Possible reasons for adjustments to compensate for disabilities/impairments generally differ between permanent, i.e. non-temporary, and longer lasting, i.e. temporary impairments.

  • Typical cases of permanent impairments are, for example, visual impairments, paralyses and/or malformations of the limbs.
  • Typical cases of longer lasting impairments are, for example, bone fractures or a severe illness.
  • As a rule, the following impairments are not considered eligible cases for adjustments to compensate for disabilities/impairments: Stress during exams, exam anxiety or concentration problems, which are based on tensions and strains typically associated with the exam situation, since each candidate is more or less exposed to this depending on their constitution.

 

Procedure for adjustment

Motions and applications

For questions or advice regarding the needs-based design of the respective examination conditions and offers for support, students and chairpersons of the boards of examiners can contact the Officer for Students with Disabilities, Chronic Illnesses and Impairments at the KU, Dr. Renate Hackel-de Latour.
