Special needs and leave of absence

Special needs in the everyday studies

Students who have a disability, dyslexia or medical condition placing them at a disadvantage in their studies can be provided with special needs provisions for their everyday study situation.

Special exam arrangements

If your disability or state of health results in substantial disadvantages in the examination situation, special examination arrangements can be made.

Leave of absence

Programme students may apply for general leave without attaching documentation or leave on the basis of documented needs. 

Postponed start

If you have accepted an offer of admission to a study programme and cannot begin, you can apply for a postponed start of studies.

Reduced progression

If you have special needs and need to spend more time on the study programme, you can apply for reduced progression of studies.

Retain admission

When you have been admitted to a study program, you get the right to study at the programme. You must meet certain requirements to keep this right.

Below the map of each building, you will find information about accessibility in the building: HC toilet, parking, telecoil.
