If you have some form of disability and are wanting to take a degree, we offer a wide range of possibilities to help you. Our student counsellors can help you find the solution that suits you best so you can use your talents and obtain your diploma.
What is a disability?
The expression disability is a collective term used to cover chronic diseases, mental and physical complaints, dyslexia, and dyscalculia. These include diabetes, rheumatism, vision impairment, depression, AD(H)D, severe migraines, and autism. Disabilities do not necessarily lead to problems during your studies. However, if they do, then an NHL Stenden student counsellor will help you find a solution.
Discuss the possibilities with a student counsellor
If you have a disability and want to study at NHL Stenden, then contact a student counsellor on +31 (0)58 244 11 55 or email@example.com. Even if you are still no sure which programme you want to take, you can still contact us to find out what is, and maybe isn’t, possible within the programme. Simply make an appointment with a student counsellor to discuss your situation. If you become disabled during your study or you require other facilities, then we will try to find a solution together.
We offer various solutions to help you get on with your studies. It may be that you need more time to complete test or have less strict attendance requirements. Or it could be that the physical environment needs to be adapted, or that you need personal facilities, such as customised chairs. We will try to come up with a tailored arrangement when discussing your needs. Of course, the solutions will need to fit within the scope offered by the degree course and exam programmes.
Adjustments and facilities
In addition to personal support, adaptations and facilities can make all the difference. You and the student counsellor will work out a solution together that is tailored to your situation. If you’d like to find out more about the various options, you can see some examples of adjustments and facilities here.
