Students with Special Educational Needs

Information for students with special educational needs

The whole Charles University seeks to enable all students comparable conditions for study and therefore it offers various types of support to students with special educational needs, i.e. to those who, due to a congenital or acquired health condition, requires modification of study conditions for the purpose of the successful study.

Contact person for English speaking students with special needs

If you are interested in being registered as a student with special educational needs, please arrange an appointment (preferably by e-mail) with Michala Maturová (michala.maturova@fsv.cuni.cz), the contact person for special-needs students, who will willingly explain you all the steps, which need to be done in order to be registered and to make use of services designated for special-needs students.

The contact person is also the key contact for students when arranging the modification of conditions for study.  It is recommended to stay in contact with the contact person during the whole period of study so that any occurring problems can be responded before they negatively affect the course of studies.
