Non-accessible contents

The content listed below is not barrier-free:

  • PDF documents embedded in the website
  • The color tones currently used do not all achieve the required contrast at a browser zoom factor of 100 percent.


  • Due to the large number of PDF documents made available that were created before 09/23/2018, it has not yet been possible to convert them to an accessible format. They will be successively adapted.
  • It has not yet been possible to provide the videos with an audio description.

Accessible alternatives:

  • In case of non-accessible enrollment documents, please contact the Student Secretariat. In case of non-accessible examination regulations, please contact the Central Examination Administration. For other cases, please use the feedback form below.
  • The embedded videos are Youtube files. Here you have the possibility to show automatic subtitles.
  • The necessary contrast is given in case of strong enlargement via the browser zoom. We are working on a fully accessible solution in this regard.
