Special needs Students

All of the Faculty of Architecture's facilities are barrier-free (barrier-free design is, of course, one of specially-emphasized areas of study at the FA). Special needs students, such as people with dysgraphia or dyslexia, can contact the CTU ELSA Centre for advice and information.

Our ELSA Centre offers consultations for applicants with disabilities or other disadvantages, prior to submission of an application for study at the CTU Faculty of Architecture. Based on these consultations, the course of admission exams can be adjusted. Academics and professionals can also take advantage of ELSA consultations.

More information on the accessibility of individual university buildings can be found on the ELSA website, in the CTU Barrier Free section.

Haptic Prague, a series of models of icons of Prague architecture for the blind and the vision impaired, was a project created by our students under the guidance of prof. Matúš Dulla and PhD students Eva Bortelová and Klára Mergerová. The models were part of the exposition of the Czech pavilion at EXPO 2015 in Milan.

Through ELSA, the Faculty of Architecture supports students and applicants with specific needs resulting from visual, auditory or physical disabilities, as well as learning disabilities, mental or severe chronic diseases. The services are comprehensive – from counselling and diagnostics to lending specific aids. ELSA offers students with disabilities:

  • Access to study literature
  • Individual instruction
  • Study assistance
  • Interpreting service
  • Personal assistance
  • Spatial orientation training
  • Visualization and recording services
  • Diagnosis of specific learning disorders
