Study with disabilities

If you are a student, or a prospective student, with some kind of disability, you have the right to high quality education and a good study environment. At the University, we have a coordinator for students with disabilities, whom you are welcome to contact in order to discuss any needs you may have for specific pedagogical support.

What counts as a disability?

Disabilities include physical, psychological and neuropsychiatric disabilities, but also specific reading and writing disabilities, such as dyslexia. Note that you must be able to validate your disability with a certificate, from a doctor, psychologist or similar.

Applying for support

In order to receive the support we offer, you must make a request through a system called Nais. You will need to attach a certificate confirming a permanent disability to the application.

Once your application is received you will be contacted by our coordinator to arrange a personal meeting. The processing time for an application is up to 4 weeks so apply well in advance before you need the support. Please also send an email to funktionshinder@his.se and announce that an application has been made. Would you prefer to make an appointment first, and submit the application afterwards you can just send an email to funktionshinder@his.se.

Make your application by clicking here. You will be directed to the website Nais.
