Entitlement to disability study support

You must be able to substantiate your disability with a certificate from an expert, such as a doctor or speech therapist, in order to be entitled to study support.

A disability may include reading and writing difficulties/dyslexia, mental and neuropsychiatric disabilities, hearing impairment, visual impairment, mobility impairment or other chronic illnesses. The support available to you depends on what kind of obstacle your disability entails in your studies. The support is planned and designed in consultation with the student.

Academic requirements

Your skills are assessed based on the same requirements that apply to other students on your course:

  • The intended course learning outcomes must be achieved for you to receive a passing grade.
  • You must independently acquire knowledge and demonstrate this in relation to the intended course outcomes.
  • You must be able to understand new research findings within your subject area as all education at university level contains elements that prepare for research.
  • Education at a higher education institution also involves being able to read articles and course literature in English.
