Studying with a disability
A disability, whatever it may be, whether it be of a physical or a psychological nature, can mean that studying takes a lot of energy and that you need more time than someone without a disability. Here at Fontys we look at what is possible and that is why we support students with a disability.
What is a disability?
Examples of a disability are:
- Psychological complaints
- Chronic illness
If you have a disability you can make use of special facilities and arrangements.
Examples of facilities and arrangements
- Extra study guidance
- Extra time during exams
- Large fonts
- Online for summarizing, reading and writing
- Adjusted study timetable
- Adjusted testing format
You can submit a request for a facility to the examination board. You will often have to make an appointment with the student counsellor first (via +31 (0) 8850-82222). Take proof of your disability with you to the appointment.
