What facilities are available if I am studying with a disability?
Whether you are physically handicapped or have something that is less visible but does affect your study results, the sooner you report this to the Dean of Students, the better it will be for you, because this can then be taken into account and special arrangements can be made.
There are numerous services and arrangements available. For example, if you can provide proof that you suffer from dyslexia, by presenting an official report or a medical declaration, you will be allotted more time to complete exams. You can file a request for special examination arrangements online.
If your condition is so serious that it causes structural delays in your studies, you must report this to Dean of Students. This also applies to chronic diseases or physical disabilities.
Studying with a disability
Do you have dyslexia? Are you easily distracted because you have AD(H)D? Do you have less energy because you have Crohn's disease or another chronic disorder? Do you find it difficult to work together in groups because you have autism? Or do you not get to lectures on time because you are in a wheelchair and the elevator is far away? There are many more (chronic) illnesses and disabilities that can hinder your studies. Together with you, we would like to look at what you need to study well.
