Studying with a functional limitation
The terms "functional limitation" and "chronic disease" cover all diseases and disabilities that are enduring (for now) and that can cause a delay in the course of your study programme. For example, all of the following fall under the category of a functional limitation: visual, auditory, and mobility handicaps; a disability of language (dyslexia), speech, endurance, memory/concentration capabilities, and organs; psychological limitations, epilepsy, rheumatism, CVS, heavy migraine, whiplash, RSI, etc.
When this functional limitation, chronic disease, or dyslexia is likely to hinder a normal course of study, students are advised to contact the student dean and student advisor at the start of their study programme. Consultation with the student dean and student advisor is aimed at arranging education in such a way that the influence of impediments is limited.
In some cases it is possible to call on legal and university regulations in the fields of finance, housing, study materials and study- and exam regulations. To be able to make optimal use of these provisions it is of great importance to contact the student advisor or student dean at an early stage.
