Accessibility in Studies

Accessible learning refers to the realisation of the physical, mental and social environment of a university in such a way that each student, regardless of their circumstances, has the opportunity to learn on an equal basis with others. Anyone can be in a situation where special arrangements, guidance or flexibility are needed to support their studies.

The accessibility of the learning environment and the accessibility of teaching are particularly important for students who face learning challenges (e.g. difficulties in reading, mathematics, perception, concentration), some kind of illness or disability or a lack of language skills that make learning difficult.

Centria University of Applied Sciences actively develops services related to the accessibility of studies and teaching. Centria is part of the ‘Accessible university studies’ network. The entire staff handles issues related to the accessibility of studies. Further information on accessible studies is provided by the campuses’ study advisors and Hanna-Rina Aho (hanna-riina.aho@centria.fi).

Centria students can participate in the Accessibility study module in the Itslearning learning environment.

Accessible books (Celia), library

Library for accessible literature and publishing Celia, produces textbooks and other literature in an accessible form. Free service can be used by anyone who has difficulty reading an ordinary book due to dyslexia, disability, illness or another similar reason.

A student of Centria University of Applied Sciences can be registered as Celia’s client either at the Kokkola or Ylivieska Centria Library.
