Services for students with specific needs

Student with specific need is a person who has for example physical or sensory handicap, specific learning disability, autism spectrum disorder, mental or other chronic-somatic disorder. Services and counselling for students with specific needs are provided for free by Counselling and Career Centre. Our main goal is to eliminate obstacles in your study, to support your personal growth and to make you successful on the labour market.

Our crucial service is modification of study conditions – called as modification of study. Typically, this means an increase in exam time, access to study materials, securing barrier free premises, lending tools and technologies, assistance services, interpreting or speech-to-text-service, individual additional tutorial, drawing up individual study plan and others. Modification of study comes from students’ needs and current possibilities of university.
