The University of Bonn offers the following information for students with disabilities: Studieren mit Handicap.
Mental Health & Stress
Students with psychological problems or mental health issues can always contact and get a personal appointment with either the studies coordinator Dr. Imke Lichterfeld, or the custodian Dr. Nicole Meier and or Dr. Hanne Birk.
You will get help structuring your studies, register for courses and exams as well as information and advice for further psychological help within the university.
You can contact Dr Birk if you want to talk to somebody who has nothing to do with exams, registrations etc.
Since our institute is located in the university’s main building and most of the classrooms are situated on the second floor with no elevator, it is extremely difficult to accommodate people who are mobility-impaired.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
For people who are physically disabled or have medically treated mental health issues, it is possible to get a so called “Nachteilsausgleich”, a letter that certifies your disability and can – if needed – provided you with adequate compensations. Examples would be the extension of deadlines, or the possibility to write an exam in three instead of two hours. In order to get such a letter, you should contact the examination office and bring the necessary notes from your doctor.
