If you have a disability or dyslexia, you may qualify for an examination facility. An important condition is that the examination provisions are necessary and that these provisions do not conflict with the learning outcome of the programme.
In case you need specific arrangements during your education, please notify your programme in good time before the start of your studies. Request a facility at least 6 weeks before you have a test or exam. If you do not request this in time, the faculty or programme may not be able to realise the facility.
From 16 August to 15 October 2021, there are extra (open office) consultation hours to discuss your desired request for a special examination arrangement with a student counsellor.
(N.B. If you have dyslexia, you don’t need to make an appointment for the arrangement of extra exam time, as uploading your dyslexia report is sufficient. Go to the web page about dyslexia and check out the video.)
a.) via Zoom (Monday to Friday 9:00-10:00)
b.) via an on-location appointment (Fridays only)
You can make an on-location appointment (Roeterseiland Campus, Building J/K) on Fridays. Appointments are for a maximum of 15 minutes. If the appointment has to be cancelled due to circumstances (coronavirus), you will receive a telephone call or be invited for a Zoom meeting.
c.) via a regular appointment
If you have a complex request, please make a regular appointment (via Zoom or on location) with the student counsellor. This will enable you to have a longer appointment.
In order to request an arrangement, you will need proof of your disability or dyslexia. The following proof is required:
Please note: facilities at the UvA may deviate from advice for facilities by experts or other educational institutions.
Please make a timely appointment with a student counsellor to start the application for an exam or other arrangement. After the appointment, the student counsellor will advice your study programme, on the the basis of your dyslexia report or other supplied statement, about the type of arrangement(s) you need and the duration of the arrangement period.
If you have dyslexia, you don’t need to make an appointment for the arrangement of extra exam time, as uploading your dyslexia report is sufficient. Go to the web page about dyslexia and check out the video.
In order to provide one or more facilities for you, specific provisions of the faculty/programme apply. Below you can find the links to the procedure of your faculty/programme. Select the link of your faculty and read the information carefully, so you can arrange your provision it in time.
Request a facility at least 6 weeks before you have a test or exam.
