In order to better inform students with a disability or chronic illness about the possibilities and/or (financial) facilities available, the Expertise Center for Inclusive Education (ECIO) launched the website www.hogeronderwijstoegankelijk.nl. Many students are not or hardly aware of the possible facilities for support during their studies. With this national information point, the expertise center wants to improve the information provision.

The website was created in collaboration with youth organisations, among others: Landelijke Studentenvakbond (LSVb), Interstedelijk Studenten Overleg (ISO), JongPIT and JOBmbo. In addition to these organisations, students, teachers and supervisors from various higher education institutions also contributed ideas about the design. The website has been tested by students. An English version will also be available before the start of the new academic year. From 28 June, the website can also be reached via the portal www.onbelemmerdstuderen.nl/, as well as the previously launched website for MBO students: www.mbotoegankelijk.nl.
