The University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons promotes equal opportunities and gender quality among its students. To this end, it breaks down cultural and structural barriers and supports its students in expressing their individuality. It implements legal principles of equality and prevents discrimination.
If you live with a disability or chronic illness that makes your studies more difficult, you can apply for assistance measures for course assessments. These are designed to help students with disabilities and chronic illness with their studies and exams. Assistance measures are granted on an individual basis and do not involve making the exams easier.
The Assistance Measures Office will be happy to advise and support you. Feel free to contact us at any time.
The Assistance Measures Office is primarily intended for current and prospective students with:
- hearing impairments, visual impairments or speech impediments
- musculoskeletal disorders
- central nervous system disorders (e.g. epilepsy)
- throat or nose disorders, diseases of the inner organs
- chronic illnesses (e.g. autoimmune diseases, Crohn’s disease, rheumatism, diabetes, allergies)
- mental illnesses (e.g. depression, anxiety disorders, autistic spectrum disorders, trauma disorders, personality disorders, schizophrenia)
- specific learning disabilities (such as AD(H)D, dyslexia, dyscalculia)
The above list is not exhaustive.
