Support during your studies
Academic and 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.
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.
