Studies and Disability
The University of Fribourg takes the specific needs of disabled students into account during their university studies. It offers support for questions of access to buildings, accommodation or disability adjustments in relation to studies and exams.
The Head of Studies&Disability issues, Mrs. Nathalie Lambert, is at the disposal of disabled students to provide preliminary, personalised advice.
Disabled students are asked to declare their disability when applying online using the Application for Disability Adjustments form.
