Starting to study: Details for prospective students with health issues
You're living with a health issue and consider taking up your studies at Goethe University? Above all: Welcome to our Goethe community.
Even if your decisions concerning the start of your studies should be guided by similar criteria whether you are living with an impairment or not, and many of the rules on university entrance are the same – there usually are some special points to consider with regard to your situation. Goethe University would like to contribute its fair share and do its best to support you as you pursue your personal plans.
Whenever the hints and advice on the following pages is not detailed enough, please do not hesitate to contact our specialised study advisory service for students with health impairments and disabilities. It might be a good idea to do so even before you begin your studies or while you are making plans for your time as a student. International students might also want to contact the International Office for additional support.
