Introduction to this website
On this site you will find some general information relating to students and studies in higher education and disability. Stockholm Univerisity has, on a yearly basis since 1993, been assigned from the government in Sweden to administer an extra grant to the higher education institutions to partly cover high costs for personal pedagogical support for disabled students to remove or bridge barriers in the study situation.
A prerequisite for Stockholm University to carry out this task is, of course, cooperation with all higher education institutions in Sweden. This occurs primarily in a network for cooperation between the Coordinators of the targeted pedagogical support at all universities, called the Coordinators' Network, and in a national reference group where 9 higher education institutions are represented.
We welcome your suggestions and ideas concerning the contents of this website. You are also invited to send us material of interest to publish!
