If you fall under any of the above categories, we can offer you a wide range of support services, which are listed in this brochure. 

The CU Carolina Centre provides the following services directly: 

  • digitisation of study materials, 
  • facilitation of study assistance,

A study room is also available for students with specific needs, where they can study and work on a PC with special software (ZoomText, Magic, JAWS) and use other technical equipment (iMac).
