Students with special needs

We are putting our effort into creating a suitable social and physical environment for students with special needs  and offer them respective guidance, counselling and support. We are constantly improving our ability to support students with special needs, based on their individual disability, in acquiring professional competencies. Our buildings have access and required facilities for people with impaired mobility.
