Note-taker at Funka

Note-taking support is a support that can be granted to students with permanent disabilities. Here you will find information about the job and how to apply.


Being a note-taker means keeping accurate and clear notes that the note-taker shares with another student. A common reason why students receive this support is if the student has dyslexia.

This applies to note-taking

  1. The note-taking support only applies to lectures where both the student and the note-taker are present. The support is not a substitute for the lecture.
  2. The note-taker and the student must take the same course during the same period.
  3. Only when the student asks for notes can the note-taker get paid for them.
  4. Note support applies only to lectures, not exercises and laboratory exercises.
  5. Students granted note-taking support from Funka contact the active note-taker for the current course and agree on how notes should be shared. The note-taker can be paid one week retroactively after the student reports the cooperation to Funka.
  6. If more students in a course have note-taking support through Funka, the note-taker shares their notes with several students. Please note that the note-taker gets paid once per lecture, regardless of how many students take part in the notes.
  7. The note-taking support also applies to distance lectures.

How you fill in the hourly report

Please fill in the exact hours and minutes the lecture lasted. Consider the whole duration of the lecture, regardless of whether breaks have been included or not. KTH rounds the time to the nearest quarter. If you are a note supporter for several students on the same course, you should only report hours for one of the students for whom you are taking notes. Examples of how to report:

  • 1 hour with or without a break is reported: 1 hour
  • 2 hours and 5 minutes with or without a break is reported: 2 hours and 5 minutes
