The studying with disabilities range of services is aimed at prospective students and beginners and, among others, accompanies studies at the KIT with topics such as studying abroad or internships through to the phase of professional orientation.
Advice and good preliminary information about requirements, procedures and contact persons can have a preventive and stabilizing effect.
The range of services is also effective in acute situations that require support. For example, if a disease is newly diagnosed or when something changes or fails, if barriers are detected or the pressure during studies becomes too great.
The topics are as varied as the people and the courses offered by the KIT. Central motivations are to go into reflection and change something in one's own situation, to want to improve as much as possible, and to actively obtain information and help.
The above involves personal topics of one's own, i.e. how to deal with one’s impairment during studies, self-management, study organization, one's own learning and working with disabilities, dealing with one’s environment.
Classical topics are the balance of disadvantages during studies, i.e. the questions: What do I need, what is possible, how can I apply for what I need? How can I make my studies more flexible so that I can achieve my degree with disabilities? What is possible? Where are boundaries?
