A disability (like a physical disability, chronic illness, AD(H)D, dyslexia, etc.) or a study limitation (such as serious personal or family circumstances) do not need to be obstacles to study at DAE. With the right guidance and facilities most students with disabilities or study limitations can complete their studies successfully.
DAE prefers to think in terms of opportunities rather than limitations. That is why we look for additional support and adjustments where needed and whenever possible; provided that the level of education is not affected and that the disability or study limitation is reported to the student counsellor (possibly through your mentor) in advance. In case a disability or study limitation occurs later in the study, the student counsellor must be notified (possibly through your mentor) as soon as possible.
What is a disability
A disability can take various forms. From learning disabilities, chronic illnesses and psychological impairments, to movement, visual and hearing impairments. A disability is generally chronic. DAE works in accordance with the Law on Equal Treatment on the grounds of disability and chronic illness. This means that you will be given the opportunity to properly do your study – we will always make it fair and make the necessary adjustments.
What is a study limitation
Study limitations can be diverse. Not only a disability, but also other circumstances can limit you in your studies; for example serious personal or family circumstances. Such a study limitation is in most cases temporary.
