For Students with Disabilities

All Swedish universities and university colleges, including Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), are able to provide some form of assistance to students with disabilities. BTH, like the other universities, have planned how to help these students pursue their studies, regardless of their disability.

For European exchange students, additional information can be found at the European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education website.

Students with disabilities

A disability means that a person has a significant and permanent impairment in physical or mental function for which they need assistance in their education.  Documented difficulties with reading and writing are also included in this definition of disability.

NOTE! All students with disabilities are advised to as soon as possible make contact with BTH's student counsellor already when they apply for studies at BTH.

BTH's campus facilities are accessible for people with special needs. For example, students and staff using wheelchairs can easily move around in the facilities and all signs on the campuses are adjusted for people with impaired vision (all signs are tactile).

If you have need for special aids, i.e. you are dyslectic, in a wheelchair or similar, please contact the Coordinator for Disabilities Ingalill Johansson via e-mail.

Please note, that Mrs Johansson cannot help you with scholarships!
