Following the principle of equal rights and obligations, candidates with disabilities or chronically ill who wish to pursue studies at the Jagiellonian University are subject to the same recruitment procedure as all other candidates. That is why candidates with disabilities or chronically ill are encouraged to have a look at the JU educational offer. The qualification criteria, a list of the required documents and the recruitment limits for individual university programmes can be found in the studies catalogue available at the Online Candidate Registration IRK website, while a detailed student recruitment schedule is available at: Welcome to the Jagiellonian University.
If the recruitment procedure for a selected university programme provides for an examination or an interview (e.g. interview or examination for second-degree, third-degree or postgraduate studies), the candidates may request for examination format adaptations to their needs stemming from disability or chronic illness. The adapted format does not entail any examination exemption but aims at ensuring equal opportunities for candidates with disabilities or chronically ill in relation to the other candidates.
The examination format is arranged on a case-by-case basis, on the basis of a detailed conversation between a DSS consultant and the candidate as well as the most recent documentation furnished to confirm the nature of the disability or chronic illness. It will also be required from the candidate to submit a written request to the head of the Disability Support Service (University Disability Officer).
For the request to be processed, the candidate must declare his/her intention to submit it via the IRK system during the candidate registration procedure and contact the DSS not later than three days prior to the relevant registration deadline in a given recruitment process.
