Inclusion support services

Inclusion support services refers to specific support provided based on your studies such as technical aids or study assistants. This does not extend to living assistance, medical care, or nursing care. Students at Berlin institutions of higher education as well as prospective students can request customized inclusion support services for their studies pursuant to Section 9 (2) Berlin State Higher Education Act.

Examples of inclusion support services:

Technical aids

  • dictation machines
  • special keyboards
  • Braille displays
  • FM systems for students with a hearing impairment 

Study assistants

Study assistants can, for instance take notes; help you prepare for class or study, as well as help structure, plan, and organize your studies; and help create and maintain realistic schedules for exam preparation, term papers, and other coursework.

It has proven to be particularly effective if the study assistant is a fellow student in the same degree program as the person submitting the adjustment application.

Are you interested in working as a study assistant or do you need more information? Then send an email to us.
