Studying with a disability or illness

Anyone who is interested in studying, should have the opportunity.  However, sometimes it can be more challenging when you have a disability, chronic or mental illness.  It can be even harder when you are new to the university, to find the information you need or find who can answer your questions. 

Whether it is regarding Crohn's disease, thyroid disorder, living with HIV, an autism spectrum disorder, epilepsy, rheumatism, asthma, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, mental health issues, paralysis, spasticity, etc.. We have experience with a wide range of disabilities and everyone is welcome to a consultation.

It is important to note that we treat personal information with the strictest confidentiality. 

This page provides information for students and prospective students with a disability. Information on the equal opportunities representatives for applicants and employees of Trier the University of Trier is available on the SBV Webseite or at sbvuniuni-trierde.


There are a number of different events on the topic of Studying with a disability, chronic or mental illness, for students and lecturers alike.
