What is a disability?
In accordance with the Discrimination Act (Government Offices of Sweden) , KTH conducts targeted work to actively promote equal rights and opportunities for students with disabilities.
The Law defines disability as permanent physical, mental or intellectual limitation of a person’s functional capacity that as a consequence of injury or illness existed at birth, has arisen since then or can be expected to arise (Discrimination Act, 2008: 567).
Its aim is to make Sweden´s universities more accessible and to counteract discrimination.
