Compensation of disadvantages application for examinations and examination prerequisites

Disabilities or chronic diseases can lead to direct disadvantages in university studies. Therefore compensation possibilities have been provided, which are designed to offset such disadvantages on an individual basis.

Compensation of disadvantages concerns the form in which studies are to be performed. It does not affect the required quality standards in any way. The objective is to change general conditions in such a way that all students are provided with equal opportunities to complete their studies.
