The supporting services for students are provided on the basis of cooperation between the student, his/her teacher and employees of the Centre. At the beginning of the semester, the student who have ticked in the application form the option taking into account his/her special needs shall receive an email to his/her student email account including information about the possibility of arranging an individual session with a professional counsellor of the Centre.

Registration with the Centre

In order to register with the Centre the student must submit any of the following eligible documents:

  • certificate of disability (of any degree),
  • document evidencing physical disability,
  • health disability card (of any degree),
  • document evidencing learning disorder(dyslexia, dysgraphia, etc.),
  • medical report.

The so-called functional diagnostics is executed within the registration process. During the diagnostics, functional impacts of the student’s disability on communication, processing of information and the implementation of other activities directly connected with studies and research activities shall be assessed.

Recommendations resulting from functional diagnostics shall serve as supporting documents for the adjustment of study requirements. The student is obliged to cooperate during the implementation of the diagnostics; otherwise optimum conditions for the support of his/her studies at TBU cannot be set.
