Support for students with special needs

For some students, there may be special circumstances making it difficult to study. At DTU, we offer various types of support to help you complete your study programme.

Applications for support are handled and coordinated by Christina Busk Marner and Allan Buhl Madsen. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need additional support to complete your studies. Together, we will discuss your situation and establish your needs and options. Sometimes, the student counsellors, the Head of Studies, or one of your lecturers can provide you with the necessary support.

However, you can also apply for various types of special educational support (SPS) or receive an exemption in relation to your studies, which in some cases may be a more appropriate solution.

On the following pages, you will find information on your options, and how we can help you: 

  • Special educational support
  • Exemption
  • Accessibility
  • Disability supplement 

We are bound by confidentiality obligations and will thus not disclose any information to your department or study programme without your consent. Furthermore, if you have received guidance, support, or certain types of exemption during your studies, it will not appear on your diploma.


NB! Due to illness the SPS Unit will not be able to take any calls during weeks 47 and 48
