More understanding, poorer facilities

THE NETHERLANDS/MAASTRICHT. While lecturers do have more understanding for students with dyslexia, chronic diseases, depression, or other disorders, the information provided about studying with a handicap is still not as it should be. In fact facilities have worsened. This is one of the conclusions in the annual report ‘Studying with a handicap’ by Centrum Hoger Onderwijs Informatie (CHOI, Centre for Higher Education Information), which was published on Tuesday.

Maastricht could also do with some improvements: the students gave the university a 6.3, which left the UM in tenth place (of thirteen) in the ranking. Last year the UM took sixth place. This drop was not the result of a decline of appreciation, but because other universities obtained a better assessment.

Wageningen has been in the lead for years: this university scores a seven and its lecturers got a 7.4 for their understanding. The University of Amsterdam is right at the bottom, barely reaching a six.

The report is based on the judgement of thousands of students in the National Student Survey. A total of 7,200 university students with a disability completed the questionnaire.
