Equal opportunities in education

Three students laugh on campus during the summer by the pond.

We aim to be a university where every student feels welcome, safe and heard and everyone -regardless of background, gender or identity- is given the same opportunities. Team Studying with a Functional Impairment offer support to students who can use some extra help. We invest in themes such as gender equality and first-generation students and encourage professors in their research on these kinds of issues. We also offer various academic programmes in which students can work on creating equal opportunities for all. 

Studying with a functional impairment

Would you like to come and study with us and do you have a functional impairment and/or do you need extra facilities? It is important to us that every student feels welcome.
