Facilities for special needs students
All the faculties make efforts in order to enable the study of disabled students: Only at the Faculty of Chemistry, the study of disabled students is more difficult as work in chemical laboratory necessitates good health. Computer rooms are barrier free. Barrier free access is also ensured at all other faculties except the Faculty of Fine Arts. The study conditions are adapted to the individual needs of students. Faculties set up individual timetables offering cooperation with the tutor as needed in a particular course. Electronic textbooks and other aids of a multimedia nature are available at most of the faculties; at FEEC, students may follow a laboratory lesson from virtual laboratories, FIT students are offered on-line lectures, students at FME have available improved connection to their home computers to the academic network.
