Accessibility – Assistance for physically handicapped students
If your mobility is limited by a disability and you have questions concerning the University of Copenhagen’s physical accessibility, please contact Special Educational Support unit at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you suffer from a documented disability that prevents you, for example, from taking exams on equal terms with other students or completing your studies within the prescribed time period, you are able to apply for dispensation for:
- Special conditions during your exams
- Exemption from student activity requirements
- Exemption from maximum study period requirements
Applications for dispensation must be submittet to the board of studies in the your department or faculty at UCPH. Before submitting your application, we suggest that you get in touch with the contact person at your faculty in order to receive advice on your options as well as the application process – for example, not all study programmes require that you apply for dispensation in order to receive extra time for your exam.
Note! Please be aware that extension of your study period is not guarenteed.
Advice and assistance outside the university
At The University of Copenhagen we will do all we can to help and assist you, but there are some issues for which we cannot provide solutions at this time. If you are in need of a helper/assistant the university can help connect you with a relevant entity. However, the university cannot cover the costs of the support. As a general rule prepayment is required.
