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:

  • Dyslexia
  • Autism
  • ADHD/ADD
  • 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.
