HAS University of Applied Sciences strives to assist students with disabilities to be able to successfully obtain and complete the education of their choice. Our definition of a disability is a physical or mental impairment which may have a delaying effect on a person’s study progress.

Types of Disabilities

These disabilities include:

  • Sensory impairments, such as those affecting sight or hearing; 
  • Mobility difficulties;
  • Specific learning difficulties (such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, fear of failure);
  • Chronic illnesses (e.g. ME) and mental health difficulties (e.g. ADHD);
  • Developmental disorders, such as Asperger Syndrome and other Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Admission interview

We advise (prospective) students with disabilities, who expect to encounter difficulties during their study, to timely request an admission interview (BEFORE the summer holidays). This interview will be conducted by someone from our Disability Support Services team. During this interview, the type and implications of the disability are discussed. Study competence in relation to the disability will also be talked about. Finally, any adjustments and facilities the student may need during his/her study will be specified to make sure HAS University can deliver them.
To arrange an interview, please use the number or email address below.
Remember to include your disability in your Studielink registration.
