European University Viadrina avows itself to be a university which appreciates diversity and heterogeneity. Thus, we try to remove barriers and apply measures allowing everybody’s participation in order to provide more inclusive education at our university and make the education system more inclusive in general.

For that reason we provide a number of possibilities for students with chronic illnesses, physical and psychological disabilities to receive counselling and support with finding appropriate means of disability compensation.

The counselling team assists students with chronic illnesses, physical and psychological disabilities with the application for organisational, edificial and financial measures of disability compensation to create equal conditions of studying for all students.
