Applicants with a disability, chronic illness or mental impairment can apply for special admission to study (hardship application, reduced waiting time, improvement of average grade) if they fulfil certain criteria. This special admission will enable you to study without other selection criteria being taken into account (average grade, waiting semester, points system). For detailed requirements and information on applications, please ask the Enrolment Office of ASH Berlin or the barrier-free university representative.
