At the University of Helsinki we do our best to provide an accessible learning environment to all students.
If you have a disability, an illness or a learning disability, you might need some special arrangements to be able to complete your studies. You should contact the faculty at the beginning of the studies or as soon as the need arises.
Special arrangements in studies, i.e. individual support for learning, can be extra time to complete assignments and exams, teaching materials given in advance or in electronic form, accessibility of classrooms and alternative ways to complete assignments and coursework.
The practical arrangements are usually agreed upon by the teacher and the student before the course or seminar begins. For more information and in order to become entitled to special arrangements, you should be in contact with the accessibility contact person of your faculty’s Student Service point at firstname.lastname@example.org.
