Studying already requires a lot of effort and concentration. If you are dyslexic, you run into an extra barrier. If you are a student at VU Amsterdam and you have dyslexia, the academic advisor can help you with study planning and facilities for exams.
To prepare, first consult the Study guide. There you will find more information about the courses, the language in which lectures are given and the literature that is used. Based on this, you can decide for yourself whether - and to what extent - you might need some help.
When registering in Studielink, you have to indicate that you are dyslexic. If you upload your dyslexia statement, it can be assessed whether you will be given extra exam time. Even after you have completed your registration, you can still indicate that you have dyslexia by registering your disability.
Academic advisor and student counsellor
The academic advisor at the faculty is always the first point of contact and can help with study planning and exam facilities. If you experience a delay in your studies, report this to your academic advisor as soon as possible. If you are significantly delayed during your studies, please contact the student counsellor to discuss options regarding financial arrangements.
