The Language Workshop - for all students

Are you having trouble structuring a paper? Do you want some feedback on the language in your oral presentation? If so, the Language Workshop can help you. The Language Workshop is open to all undergraduate and master’s students at the university and is free of charge. We offer consultations in both Swedish and English.
See the Language Workshop.



Students with disabilities who have enrolled in higher education will receive forms of support that are directly related to their education according to need.
For more information and contact the disability coordinator.

The Reading Studio - for students with reading and writing impairments

Students with reading and writing impairments can borrow text books as talking books? Contact the Library, and they will arrange to log them in to the Swedish Agency for Accessible Media (MTM), for simple ordering and downloading of talking books. The University Library also has a Reading Studio, located in the Blåsenhus Library, where students themselves can also convert other texts, such as research articles or course compendia, to synthesised speech.
