Charles University provides essential support tor students and applicants with special needs. This concerns people with the following conditions:
Specific learning disorders,
Autism spectrum disorder,
Other difficulties (e.g. psychological disorders, impaired communication, or chronic somatic disease).
If you fit in to any of the above categories, then you have a wide range of support services available to you.
The Carolina Centre is the main office responsible for the support of persons with special needs at Charles University. Besides coordinating the whole system of services, we even provide some of them ourselves.
You can find additional assistance at your faculties. An authorized contact person for students with special needs works at each of the faculties who will help you with anything you need, and you can contact this person anytime during your studies. The contact persons cooperate with the registrar’s offices, the guarantors of study programmes, and even the instructors. Some of the faculties even have special offices that provide students with a range of services (e.g. digitized study materials, interpreting and transcription services, professional counselling, etc.).
