Exceptional Circumstances 
We strongly advise all students who are affected by exceptional circumstances during their study to contact a student advisor. This not only includes students with a disability or handicap or students who participate in top-level sports but also students who are affected by other exceptional circumstances (such as illness, special family circumstances or personal circumstances) and are worried that this will slow down their studies. For these students the university offers provisions, for which you may want to submit a claim, but these are normally only available when the claim is submitted on time.
