Soms kun je beroep doen op aangepaste studievoorzieningen als je vertraging dreigt op te lopen

Education facilities

If you cannot keep up with the pace of your studies, or need other educational modifications because of a chronic illness or disability, you can discuss with your education coordinator what is the best solution for you.

Appointment with your education coordinator

Make an appointment with your education coordinator to discuss what options are available to minimize the impact of your disability or circumstance.  The education coordinator can help you with an adapted study schedule and discuss other solutions:

Adjusted study schedule

At a nominal tempo, you'll take 60 credits per year.  The curriculum and schedule are designed to accommodate that. Sometimes that can be too much, if you have low energy, are ill, have a disability or a chronic illness.

In that case, you can drop one or more courses temporarily or for the longer term, and take them at a later time.  Because you cannot always foresee the consequences, it is wise to discuss your adjusted study plan with the education coordinator.  Some courses have entry requirements, or it may be difficult to take up an internship or exchange if your planning deviates too much.

This will also mean that you will take longer to complete your studies, which in turn will have consequences for the bsa or your financial situation, for example. You can discuss this with a dean of students. For more information, see Study delay.

Other possible adjustments you can discuss with the education coordinator are:

  • Making agreements on how to deal with absences due to illness
  • Adjustment of deadlines for handing in papers, assignments, etc.
  • Individual assignment instead of group assignment
  • Adaptation of the obligation to be present
  • Substitution of one subject for another
  • Recording of lectures if not available online
  • Taking notes on laptop
  • Interpreter for the deaf
  • Note taker
