STUDIES’ ACCESSIBILITY

For students with disabilities or individual learning needs

The university offers the adaptation of studies for students with disabilities or individual educational needs (physical, sensory disorders, autism spectrum, dyslexia, mental health problems, other learning difficulties).

The students wishing to adapt their studies have to:

  • Fill in the survey form
  • After filling the form, email ineta.simonaite@ktu.lt to arrange a meeting with the social welfare coordinator (if needed,  a KTU psychologist can be invited to participate)
  • Provide a document certifying individual needs (statement from a medical institution, psychologist’s recommendation or certificate of the level of working capacity)*

KTU also provides free services of a psychologist. Students who have mental health problems, as well as those who feel increased anxiety, stress, other negative emotions that hinder the quality of studies are invited to register for a consultation by email psichologas@ktu.lt

*All data provided by students are protected by the law on data protection and will not be passed on to third parties.
