Support during your studies

Academic and pedagogical support

Pedagogical support

If you have medical conditions that can influence your academic performance (like ADHD, dyslexia etc.), you can get additional support from Lund University. Contact our Pedagogical Support to find out more about which kind of assistance you can get and how you apply for it. Note that you should have a certificate stating that your disability is permanent in order to receive pedagogical support. 

Apply in time

Preparations for pedagogical support can take a lot of time (for example, audio adaption of course literature can take 6-8 weeks), so don't forget to contact pedagogical support as soon as you are admitted to your studies. 

When you receive your decision from Pedagogical Support, contact your study advisor as soon as possible. It is your study advisor who will then contact your course teachers. 

Student Health Counseling

The Student Health Centre has counsellors, nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists and a physiotherapist. Their work is of course confidential.

The staff at the Student Health Centre works primarily with problems that affect your ability to study - i.e. stress, worry, anxiety, depression and/or academic difficulties. To see a doctor or nurse regarding general medical issues, you see a public or private health centre (Vårdcentral).


AWELU is an abbreviation for Academic Writing in English at Lund University. AWELU is an electronic source about rules for academic writing at our university. There you can find all the necessary information about how to make your academic texts better.
