If you are studying at the university and have a disability you may apply for special educational support.

Support for students with disabilities

The University of Borås offers all students the possibility to study on equal terms. Consequently, if you are a registered student and have a disability you may apply for special pedagocial support. The term disability, is defined as the physical, mental or developmental disabilities which pose substantial barriers to your ability to study. One such barrier is reading and writing disabilities/dyslexia.

Please contact our co-ordinator for students with functional disabilities Anita Lindahl, or our counsellor for students with dyslexia Carola Lindbom, well in advance so we can plan your studies ahead.

What kind of pedagogical support is offered?
