Providers of functional diagnostics

Functional diagnostics is an approximately one-hour long interview conducted by a specialist. The purpose is to identify your needs and any limitations during the study course. The output is an assessment (specialist opinion) containing a proposal of supporting measures that you can benefit from during your study. The assessment will serve you as a basis for claiming your entitlement to avail yourself of the relevant services and study modification. The functional diagnostics assessment can be updated as needed.


Functional diagnostics is performed at the following centres (or home faculty centres or by a specialist on the basis of an agreement with the contact person or member of the Student Administration Office):
