Requesting provisions

Are you studying at Erasmus University and do you require extra support because of your functional impairment so you can study successfully? Please indicate this as soon as possible. If you are already aware of your functional impairment, the best course of action is to make this known before commencing with your study programme. If the functional impairment is first diagnosed during your studies, it is important that you contact your study advisor as soon as possible. To request provisions, please use the following step-by-step plan.

Explore which provisions you will need to be able to study effectively. There are two ways you can obtain this information:

  • Take a look at the options for provisions available on our page functional impairments and provisions.  You will find a number of possible provisions here that are available for each functional impairment. You can use this overview as a source of inspiration. If you have specific needs, you can always discuss this with a study advisor. 
  • If you have a complex question, contact a study advisor (by e-mail, telephone or during a session). He or she can provide you with additional information regarding your options for provisions. When you know exactly which provision you will apply for, you can initiate an Osiris Case below.  

IMPORTANT! Are you studying at EUR without previously having requested any provisions? Contact your study advisor to find out which application procedure is the right one in your case. 

  • After going over our website or following your meeting with a study advisor, you now know which provisions to request.
  • You can request provisions through Osiris Case. Always use your e-mail address as your contact address.
  • When you are requesting provisions, you must also upload a medical certificate. It is important that you have this certificate (a digital version) at hand. 
    Depending on the functional impairment, a medical certificate from a doctor, psychologist or special education expert is sufficient.

Once you have submitted your request in Osiris Case, various professionals will commence with processing your request. An overview of the procedure after your request has been submitted can be viewed below.

  • Once your request has been submitted, it will be reviewed by a study advisor, an Educational Office employee or the Examination Board. He or she will check whether the application is complete. If the study advisor believes that the provisions you requested will not help you sufficiently, the can consult with Team Studying With A Functional Impairment (SMF). Team SMF can arrange special provisions if needed. 
  • Is your application incomplete? You will receive a notification in Osiris that you need to provide additional information to complete your application.
  • Is your application complete? Your request will be forwarded along with your medical certificate to the Examination Board.
  • Once the request and medical certificate have been forwarded to the Examination Board, the Examination Board’s official response deadline starts.

  • The Examination Board receives and reviews your request and medical certificate.
  • It will then decide whether you are entitled to the requested provision or provisions.
  • The Examination Board will inform you of its decision through Osiris Case. You will receive a notification sent to your EUR e-mail address stating that the Examination Board’s decision can be viewed in the Osiris Case online environment.
  • The decision will specify the period for which the provisions have been granted.
  • Do you disagree with this decision? Read about your legal position here

When you have been assigned examination provisions, it is important to carefully read the information below.

Register timely & provisions

It is important to register in good time for your examination, to be able to make use of the examination provisions that have been assigned to you. Please note that if you register late until two working days before an examination, you can still use the extra facilities. If the late registration falls within the two working days before an examination or on the day of the examination, the right to extra examination facilities will be lost.


Via OSIRIS Student, you will be informed about your examination location. A few working days before an exam, the exact location of that exam is published through this channel. On OSIRIS Student, you will find information about in which block and in which room you are expected. All examinations take place in the Exam Centre, the old sports building. See also this map, section E3.

Participants who have permission to sit examinations in the smaller rooms designated for students with disabilities are not allowed to sit the examination in the large hall. It is not possible to reserve two places.


Examinations at our campus start on fixed times: at 09:30, 13:30, and 18:30. If you make use of the provision extra time 30 minutes, the ending-time of your examination will be 30 minutes later than the ending-time of the regular examination.

Late arrival

It is still possible to start an examination up until 15 minutes after the commencement of the examinations; after that, it is no longer possible to participate.


Do you choose not to participate in an examination during the regular examination rounds or during the re-sits? Then let the examination organization know via e-mail: Another student can then make use of your place.

Disciplinary rules

The disciplinary rules for examinations in a separate room are identical to those that apply to the examinations in the big hall. For more information, see:

Accessibility campus

On our accessibility page, you can learn more about the accessibility of the campus. Here, you can also find a special map where routes for visitors and students with reduced mobility are clearly indicated.

  • Together with your study advisor, evaluate multiple times whether the provisions offer you sufficient support.
  • Also be sure to keep in mind the duration for which you are permitted to use these provisions. Do you need to request an extension at the end of the academic year?
