Funka - compensatory support for students with disabilities

Students with documented, permanent disabilities can receive compensatory support in their studies at KTH. The group that coordinates supports is called Funka.

Information on how to apply for compensatory support

Pre-ordering of support during examination

Some support needs to be pre-ordered before each examination. Support such as typing on a computer may not need to be used every time. In order for Funka's examination administration to know which support or supports you want to use at a specific examination occasion, you need to notify this.

Information about which supports you need to pre-order and order form.

What support can I get?

What support you can get is an individual assessment and depends on what disability you have. Our most common supports are e.g. extended writing time, typing on computer, note-taking support.

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.
