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.
The practical arrangements are usually agreed upon by the teacher and the student before the course or seminar begins. If needed you can also consult the Head of Academic Affairs at the faculty.
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.
If you would like to have more information on the special arrangements, you can contact the Student Services in the City Centre at disabilityservices(at)helsinki.fi.
