Students with disabilities

Different supportive measures are offered for students with disabilities.

Disability is defined as a permanent or long-term physical or mental disability which may lead to a handicap in the study environment. Examples of forms of support the University can offer:

  • Note taking assistance
  • Talking books and braille
  • Sign language interpreter for students with hearing difficulties
  • Extra tuition
  • Oral instead of written exam
  • Longer examination hours
  • Special arrangements for teaching and examination

Note for exchange students

Please note that all support for exchange students must be financed by the student's home university during the his or her study period at Stockholm University.
Students with disabilities who are in need of supportive adjustments should contact the Coordinator for students with disabilities or the dyslexia educationalist when applying to studies at Stockholm University, or well before the start of the studies to ensure that proper support can be provided.
