Study support for students with disabilities

As a student with a long-term disability, you can apply for targeted study support to be able to study on equal terms.

Apply for study support

If you have a disability you are welcome to apply for targeted study support. The term disability here refers to a permanent or long-term disability.

How to apply – step by step

  1. Apply via the national system Nais.  Attach a doctor's certificate stating your disability. You can upload a photo of the certificate with your phone. Note: The doctor's certificate must be in English or Swedish.
  2. The coordinator for study support will contact you to discuss appropriate support measures.
  3. The coordinator makes a decision where the support measures are outlined.
  4. The support measures are available to you via Nais.
  5. You need to show the support measures to your teachers and examinators at the beginning of each course, when you discuss your educational support with them.

Never send sensitive personal data about yourself such as medical certificates with health information, names and personal identification numbers to the university by email.

It may take time to arrange the solution that suits your needs, so contact us well in advance.
