Studying with disability

Admission to a programme

Up to five percent of the university places for a degree programme can be awarded per semester based on the so-called hardship case quota.

Prospective students with a disability must fulfil the general study requirements of the respective university in order to be accepted. However, there is the possibility of petitioning for a place based on the hardship case to offset possible disadvantages when applying for admission.

To do so, according to the admission and matriculation regulation of Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences, you need to add an informal letter to your application, explaining your personal situation and listing detailed reasons for pleading hardship. You will also need to include proof of your situation (e.g. a medical certificate).

For any questions regarding admission, please contact Melanie Dominke of the Academic Department.
