Don't let these opportunities pass by and let us hear from you! Often it is possible to prevent extra delays in your academic progress. Sometimes it takes time to arrange certain measures, so the sooner you apply the better!

Student platform: studying with a disability and/or chronical disease
Would you like to exchange views on studying with a disability at the TU Delft? The student platform is a platform for students with a disability and/or chronical disease. You can think of dyslexia, autism, AD(H)D, a physical disability or depression. The platform will meet a couple times a year in order to discuss current issues regarding studying with a disability. These insights will be used as input for different bodies within the TU Delft, but the platform also is a chance to get to know other students and to make the challenges students with a disability face, more visible.
In the coming period, the platform will discuss several issues, because new policies are being prepared. Do you want to receive more information about or participate in the student platform? Please reach out to Milou Eilers, Trainee Well-being (firstname.lastname@example.org).
