Special needs during study

If you have disabilities that need individual facilitation during your study period, please contact us for assistance. This applies both to temporary arrangements during parts of your study period or arrangements during the entire study. Documentation from a doctor, specialist or other experts must be presented.

Doctors certificate or similar

When applying for special arrangements you must present a certificate issued by a medical professional or other documentation of the need for special arrangements.

If you have not yet seen a doctor/specialist for your disabilities/special needs please contact us prior to making an appointment with a doctor/specialist and we will let you know what kind of documentation we require.

The special arrangements made in connection with examinations must not result in the student(s) being tested in a qualitatively different manner, and they
must not involve a lowering of the academic standards.
