University of Silesia in Katowice

Disabled Students' Support

The main concern of the Disabled Students’ Support Office is the adjusting the university to the needs of the student. How the process works:

  • Departament of International Relations (DIR) informs the Office for Disabled Students (ODS) of a disabled student arrival
  • ODS asseses needs of a particular student
  • ODS lists available forms of support and informs the student about them
  • after consulting it with the student, DIR and ODS select needed forms of support and begin to implement them

Availabe forms of support:

  • disabled student’s assistant
  • toll-free hire of necessary equipment (such as: magnifying glasses, recorders etc.)
  • adjusting forms of validation (written exam to verbal exam, using special software while taking a written exam etc.)
  • providing with digitalized versions of textbooks
  • accommodation in dorm rooms adjusted to disabled persons’ needs
