The application for special arrangements must be submitted to the admission services of all the UAS you are applying to. All higher education institutions use the same application form and it is available on their website. Application form for Xamk will be available here by the beginning of the application period

The application must include copies of the certificates to which you make appeal. Documents verifying dyslexia, or permanent disability, illness or learning disability must have been issued within the last 5 (five) years. The period of validity of other documents will be decided case-by-case.

In case the issue entitling you to special arrangements already exists during the application period, the application for special arrangements must be submitted:
