Studying with a disability (1 hour) (online)

Information session

For you?

A disability or chronic illness can hinder studying, making studying more difficult and costing more time and energy. Sometimes this is clearly visible (you are blind or drive in a wheelchair), but often a disability is not noticeable, for example in the case of dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, autism or a mental illness.

If you have a support question for following education or taking exams, the UvA would be happy to help you with this. Depending on your disability, the UvA offers various options for support in following education and taking exams to help you study as pleasantly as possible.

In the information session, the student counsellor, study adviser and the Student Disability Platform will tell you how best to arrange these practical matters.
