Studying with a disability

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.

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.
