Studying with a Functional Impairment

Studying with a functional impairment at EUR

Erasmus University Rotterdam believes that it is important that all students can make the best use of their talents. Team Studying with a Functional Impairment (Team SMF) devotes themselves to achieving this ambition and are committed to supporting students with a functional impairment. Students with an impairment include students with a physical disability or chronic illness, with dyslexia or another learning difficulty, and mental health conditions. 

Team SMF is part of Team Student Support and consists of two Student Counsellors. Together they work hard to shed light on the available study provisions for students with an impairment. The team focuses on creating university-wide provisions, such as text to speech software for students with a visual handicap or improving campus accessibility. To make this possible, they work closely together with all parties involved, such as the Student Advisors, Examination Boards and Real Estate and Facility Services. 

Many students studying at Erasmus University may need additional provisions in order to achieve their personal and study goals. By contacting study advisors as soon as possible, and by indicating what support is needed Team SMF can be there to help students, both individually and at an institutional level. On the page 'Request extra facilities', you can find more information on how to submit a request. 



Studying with a functional impairment can come with some challenges. Make sure to schedule an appointment as soon as possible with your study advisor to discuss what provisions you need to be able to study at EUR.
