Inclusion support services for students
The Counselling Centre for Barrier-free Studies has also taken on the task of awarding inclusion support services for students according to the Berlin Higher Education Act.
Applications for inclusion support services for students such as e.g. study assistants, book allowance or technical aids can be submitted here. Study assistance is granted to study applicants according to the impairment-related requirements.
What qualifies as inclusion support services for students?
Study assistants provide help e.g. with transcriptions, library researches or digitisation of texts.
Technical aids include needs-oriented supplementary equipment for laptops or PCs as well as other technical aids that are required for studying and for which no other social service provider bears the costs.
For the advice and application processing of technical aids is cross-university Ms. Bültbrune responsible.
Phone: 030 93939-9071
Costs for books and work materials can be subsidised as a flat rate, if a needs-based requirement is the case.
At the request of the students concerned, we support the organization of sign language interpreters through the coordination of studierendenWERK BERLIN. All information is available >> here
For studies at Berlin universities or colleges, speech-to-text reporters can be applied for within the framework of inclusion support services for students. For detailed information please klick >> here.
