The responsibles for quality of studies are your people to address when it comes to problems concerning the approval of exams, courses or internships. All students havethe possibility to tell us their problems, receive help or get a second opinion. We cooperate closely with the Qualitätsbüro to constantly improve the conditions for students at our University. Additionaly we work to improve the Bachelor-/Mastersystem and to guarantee longer opening hours in our libraries. We oversee the distribution of the money ment to improve quality of teaching and studying and are in close contact with the University boards.

Our department deals with the topics of accessibility and neurodiversity at the university. We want to establish a climate at the university that understands disability as a natural variation of human diversity. Disability includes not only physical disability or mobility limitations, but also sensory disabilities, all physical and mental chronic diseases, as well as autism, ADHD, partial performance disorders (e.g. dyslexia and dyscalculia, etc.) etc. In the sense of a social and human rights-based model of disability, we see the university as obliged to take into account the needs of disabled students. Students with disabilities do not have to adapt to the university, but the university has to change its framework so that everyone can study with us with equal opportunities and without barriers. We understand accessibility as an all-embracing “design for all”. Accessibility does not only refer to structural barriers, but we also want to ensure that students with all kinds of disabilities are compensated for any disadvantages. It is therefore particularly important to change the attitudes and values of university employees. One topic that is very close to our hearts is raising awareness of disability from a human rights perspective. Disabled students must be able to complete their studies in a barrier-free and discrimination-free place. We are committed to this. For example, by organising various events on the subject, and also by advising students in asserting their rights vis-à-vis the university and supporting them if possible.

All interested students and staff are welcome to join our working group on accessibility and neurodiversity. If you are interested, please contact us at: accessforall@asta.uni-saarland.de
