Studying With a Disability
If, as a result of a functional limitation (for example, dyslexia), you need certain provisions or adjustments for attending lessons and / or taking exams, you can discuss this with the student counsellor at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
Student counsellor Heleen de Kam can help you with practical or personal matters that may influence the progress of your studies. Together you will discuss which facilities or adjustments you need to complete your studies, if necessary in consultation with the conservatory management. The conversations are confidential. The student counsellor can also refer you to institutions outside the conservatory.
Are you considering a study at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and would you like to talk about extra facilities or adjustments? Then please contact Heleen de Kam.
Every year, the Amsterdam University of the Arts offers training courses concerning issues that may impede study progress. For example, you can follow a study-related stress / failure anxiety course or a course on planning and time management. Click here for more information.
