Educational support for doctoral students with disabilities
The doctoral student's form of employment determines who is responsible for pedagogical support for doctoral students with disabilities.
Doctoral students with employment
The doctoral student's home institution is responsible for arranging and financing targeted pedagogical support for people with disabilities. The home department is also responsible for work environment issues such as work equipment and IT tools, as well as for any other efforts needed to achieve a satisfactory work environment. This may, for example, apply to sign language interpretation at work meetings and work literature in a broad sense in an adapted format. The Employment Service can cover the cost or part of the cost of sign language interpretation at work meetings or the like. The doctoral student can also turn to the Interpreting Center for interpretation at work meetings. If the doctoral student is to lead the work meeting or participate in staff training, the Interpreting Center usually refers to the Employment Service's resources. The Employment Service can cover the costs of the production of work literature on an adapted medium.
Doctoral students without employment
The doctoral student is equated with other students with disabilities. See Studying with disabilities.
Support for doctoral students in the study situation
is granted by the coordinator for students with functional variation at Stöd för program- och utbildningsnämnder. This can, for example, be extra supervision and / or educational interpretation, in the same way as for studies at the undergraduate and advanced level. The coordinator for students with functional variation can also assist with support to the research student's home institution about what support should be given. KIB can assist with alternative course literature. Contact the coordinator.
