Accessibility Unit of the University of Macedonia


The University of Macedonia has at its disposal an Accessibility Unit with the aim of meeting the needs of students with disabilities more effectively.

The creation of this special accessibility service was made taking into account the significant access difficulties faced by students with disabilities, the actual needs of students with disabilities studying at the University of Macedonia, and the proven contribution of similar services already available at other Universities.

Students with disabilities in Universities comprise the following categories:

  1. students who by law have been registered without participating in examinations (5%) in addition to admitted students;
  2. students who entered through Panhellenic Examinations (special or not);
  3. students who developed a disability during their studies;

The basic needs or requirements of students with disabilities are:

  • access to University premises;
  • access to educational material (printed and electronic);
  • access to lectures/lessons and access to slides/projections in the classroom;
  • note-taking facilities;
  • access to written examinations;
  • access to the content of announcements (course syllabus, course announcements, examination results, etc.);
  • access to programs enabling various activities (conferences, student assemblies, artistic and sports events, etc.);
  • access to information related to the provision of services by the university;
  • access to interpersonal communication with teaching, technical and administrative staff;
