Home Studies For persons with disabilities
Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU) aims to treat all community members equally. Currently, there are students studying at VGTU who have mobility difficulties, hearing or visual impairments, or long-term conditions. 

Every student is equally important for VGTU; thus, individual student needs are taken into account as far as is possible, providing necessary adaptations and assistance within the resources available. Students with disabilities or long-term conditions are eligible for a flexible exam schedule. Students with severe disability are partially or totally exempted from tuition fees. Since 30 April 2012 students with disabilities receive monthly financial support which can be used to increase the accessibility of studies, e.g. hire interpreters or consultants, use transportation services to access the University, buy equipment necessary for studies etc.

The University’s premises and facilities are constantly improved to be more disability-friendly. There are 4 work places for students with special needs at VGTU Library. In addition, students can use braille embosser (braille printer), braille device for text input/output on computer, 3 electronic magnifiers, 4 special keyboards and alternative mice. The following software is installed on 4 computers:
  • JAWS 14 – a computer screen reader programme that allows visually impaired users to read the screen with a text-to-speech output;
  • Win Taker Voice 1.6 – a computer screen reader programme with a text-to-speech output in Lithuanian;
  • SuperNova Magnifier 13.03 – software enlarging part or all screen content.
Other University’s spaces are also adapted for students with disabilities – most of the University’s lifts have braille signs on buttons and screens with enlarged floor numbers.
