Information for (future) students

If you have a disability, such as a physical disability, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger syndrome or a chronic illness, and you would like to study at TU Delft, you will probably want to know what facilities TU Delft can offer you and how you can apply for them. 

Customised facilities

At TU Delft we try to provide customised facilities based on the experiences you have gained during your prior education. During an exploratory consultation attended by yourself and, if you wish, your parent and/or assistant/carer and a student counsellor and/or an academic counsellor on behalf of the university, we will address the situation at the faculty and the differences compared to your previous education, and we will try to apply the support you currently receive to the facilities available at TU Delft. The options available to you in the Netherlands and at TU Delft may be different to those you are used to in your country of origin. Please keep this in mind!

If you would like to find out more before applying for a study programme at TU Delft, please send an email to functiebeperking@tudelft.nl.

Appointment

How can you make an appointment for an exploratory consultation? The easiest way is to register through Studielink. Do this in plenty of time, because it can take some time to arrange certain facilities.
If you register for a study programme at TU Delft through Studielink, you will automatically be asked whether you want to find out more about studying with a disability at TU Delft. When answering this question, you can also indicate whether you would like to receive an invitation for an exploratory consultation on this subject.
If you are dyslexic, depending on your faculty's policy, the available facilities may be discussed during an initial talk with your academic counsellor. In all other cases you will, after registering through Studielink, automatically receive an invitation for a talk from one of the student counsellors.

Doctor's certificate

If you think you require any of the facilities, please bring a doctor's certificate stating your diagnosis with you to the consultation if this is already available.
