Technical equipment loans

If, because of your disability, you find it difficult to keep up with notetaking, there is the possibility of borrowing a dictaphone – to record lectures for example. You can also borrow a scanning pen that allows you to scan and translate English text directly from the book.

Talking books 

If you are a student with a reading disability - for example dyslexia, adhd or vision impairment, you are entitled to access your course literature as talking books.

Other course materials 

Compendia, articles and other course materials or sections of books can generally be read using speech synthesis. If the document does not contain any selectable text, it can be converted into a text file instead. This is built into the University's speech synthesis system, which can be downloaded.

Notetaking support 

A fellow student can help you to take notes during lectures and seminars.  

Extended time for an examination

You can be granted extra writing time during an examination.

Adapted computer

You can be allowed to use an adapted computer during an examination. The computer contains several programs, including speech synthesis and a spellchecker. 

Sign language interpreter 

If due to hearing loss or deafness you use sign language, you can receive assistance from a sign language interpreter. If you require an interpreter you must contact the Malmö University coordinator when you make your initial application for a course programme.

Study assistant

You can receive support from a study assistant in situations where you need practical help to speak or write.

Guide

A guide can help you to move from one place to another and find your way around the University.

Mentor

In certain cases you can receive help from a mentor - to plan and structure your studies for example. It is the individual student's needs that determine how the support is arranged.

Supervision

It could be possible to receive extra supervision from teachers. A decision is made in consultation with the Programme Coordinator.
