In some cases, a person’s disability may require a slower than normal rate of study. Where necessary, the head of subject and academic secretary or careers and study guidance counsellor may, in partnership with the student, design an individual study plan for the studies’ completion. An individual study plan should be subject to continual revision. Opportunities for designing an individual study plan depend upon the course content, course/program design, etc., and are not immediately obvious in every field. Various options and possibilities may be discussed on the basis of each student’s needs and the course design.
As a student, you should investigate the opportunity to obtain an individual study plan for the programme or course that interests you well in advance. Talk to the head of subject or a careers and study guidance counsellor.
