An informative day about studying with a disability for future students and their parents. 

The transition from high school to the university demands a lot of prospective students. When you study with a chronic illness or (psychological) disability your challenges are even greater. The introduction program “studying with a disability” prepares you for a good start at our university. This programme offers starting students and parents specific information about studying with a disability or chronic illness.  

Elements of the programme

  • To get acquainted with the several study counsellors you encountered during your studies: study adviser of your educational programme, student counsellor, psychologist and diversity co-ordinator.
  • Finding your way in the practical affairs of guidance and support.
  • Clarity on whom to contact for specific questions and facilities.
  • Practical experience of a student.
  • Information about the Kick-In and how you can participate in the introduction programme as well as possible with your personal circumstances.
  • Information on specific support from outside institutions. 

After lunch, students will be speed dating with study counsellors and students. For parents, there is a separate meeting 'balance between coaching and letting go' with a counselling psychologist.
