Students with functional variations/disabilities

Chalmers aims to be an accessible university, open for everyone. For this reason, Chalmers strives to offer students a creative environment with the best possible conditions for work, studies and personal growth, regardless of functional variation (disability).

How to apply for educational support

  1. Log into NAIS with your Chalmers ID or the same login you use for and follow the instructions. You must have documentation that certifies a permanent disability. For certification of dyslexia, the document can be approved by an authorised dyslexia assessor or a special needs instructor. The certificate must include the results of relevant standardised tests. Also applies to you who have long-term COVID with symptoms for at least 6 months.​
  2. After submitting your application, you will receive an email confirming its receipt.
  3. We will also summon you to a personal meeting.
  4. Your decision and recommended support measures will be confirmed in NAIS after the meeting.
  5. Read carefully your decision in Nais so you know what you need to do yourself to access your support granted in Nais.​
If a student has a temporary injury or illness, pedagogical support / adaptation is not given by the Funka coordinator, the student must instead contact the examiner in the course.

The student is responsible for taking part in the information in this Nais - certificate. The student must apply for pedagogical support in good time so that the support is available before the start of the course, a new study period and / or an upcoming course element. If this does not happen, no guarantees can be given that the support is in place at the start of the course.​

Doctoral students can be granted educational support linked to their study situation. You can apply by logging into​​. For support related to a doctoral student’s working environment or tasks, consult the nearest supervisor at your place of work.

Due to allergies, pets may not be brought to Chalmers premises, with exception for assistance dogs. Student in need of assistance dog makes an application in ​Nais.​
