Studying with disabilities and chronic illnesses


every Monday14-15:30 Connect: a group to connect, share, and support

Do you feel lost at uni? Would like to have more contact with other students? Feel like you´re lagging behind, or not even sure how to compare your pace with other students?

Do you feel overwhelmed by everything that is going on around us in the world and that you are alone? You´re not! Many students, international or otherwise, feel overwhelmed by (re-)starting university and/or by recent events (e.g. Covid, the war in Ukraine, protests in Iran). Connecting with others can help you overcome these feelings. In this group, we will create a shared space where you can connect with others in similar situations and discover your inner strength.

The group will have a limited number of participants (7-9 persons). The language will be English and both international and non-international students are welcome. Participants are expected to attend the group every week, at least until the end of the lecture period.

When? Monday 14-15:30, 20.11.2023 - 25.03.2024

Where? TU Main Building 

How to join? Send an email to flora.petak(at)tu-berlin.de or lisa.wienert(at)tu-berlin.de to schedule a first meeting.
