Examination Supports

Examination Supports for Disability Support Service (DSS) students









Examination Supports

Students who have a disability/learning difference or medical condition which means that they will require examination supports/reasonable accommodations such as extra time, entitlement to type, the use of reading software, a scribe, a sign language interpreter, a smaller shared examination venue or a separate examination venue must first apply to the Disability Support Service (DSS). For more information please click HERE.

The Disability Support Service will confirm with the Examinations Office which supports (reasonable accommodations) a student is entitled to for their examinations. The Disability Examination Supports Administrator will then contact the student outlining the procedure to request examination supports from the Examinations Office. DSS Students can contact the Examinations Office by email: ExamsdssCork@mtu.ie or telephone 021 433 5090 / 087 325 8424.
