A disability does not necessarily lead to problems in your studies. But if is does then tailor – made solutions must be found. This is done because, for instance, a disability such as dyslexia requires a different solution for different people.
A meeting between you, the study coach co-ordinator and the contact person Disability & Study can result in agreements to adapt your programme of study. These adaptations are recorded in a contract.
The support protocol describes how the support of students with a disability is regulated at various stages, such as intake, during the studies and graduation.
