Informal Care

Is there someone in your home who is ill, disabled, addicted, or depressed? Do you often have to care for a family member? This can be very challenging especially in combination with studying. At Saxion we want to support you! 


You can apply for informal care status, making it easier for you to access resources.

  • recording of the lesson

  • alternative exams and more.
