Applying for university studies with a reading impairment

Do you have a reading impairment and are thinking about studying this autumn? On the larger programmes at Södertörn University and the Swedish Red Cross University College, most course books are accessible as talking books right from the start.

Thinking about applying for higher education this autumn?

If you have a reading impairment, for example ADHD, dyslexia or visual impairment, you should know that you are entitled to have your compulsory course literature converted into talking books.

However, one common problem is that it may take up to eight weeks to convert a text book into a talking book. Planning ahead is thus crucial, but not always possible for students, especially if you have just started a programme.

Therefore, at the library, we aim to make course literature available before the start of the semester, without it being pre-ordered by a student. This service applies to a range of programmes, including Teacher Education at Södertörn University and nursing at the Swedish Red Cross University College. This means that you can access most of your course course literature as talking books right from the start of the course, allowing you a more equal study situation to that of your fellow students.

Welcome to apply to Södertörn University and the Swedish Red Cross University College! The application deadline for the autumn semester is Monday 15 April.

Already studying at SH or RKH and need talking books, or do you want to know more about our services? Read more at Library help and support for students with a disability.
