Almost 40 percent of university and university of applied sciences students have a functional impairment, but not all institutions offer adequate facilities to support them, according to a report published on Thursday by the Expertise Centre for Inclusive Education.
Inaccessible buildings, lacking examination accommodations, and insufficient information about additional assistance are among the issues highlighted. According to the report, the available support strongly depends on the institution where a student is enrolled. That needs to change, says national student association ISO. ‘It cannot be that the level of support depends on the city where you study’, says chairperson Demi Janssen.
