Abstract [en]

In many European countries the number of dyslexic students entering higher education is increasing. The present study focuses on how university institutions and teachers are affected by students with dyslexia, the type of support offered by the higher education institutions and the strategies used by the students with these problems. Results from interviews and self-reports of 30 university students and 25 lecturers from 3 Swedish universities showed that the students use both compensation methods offered by the institutions and personal strategies. The results indicated that there are significant knowledge gaps in the educational institutions regarding students who have dyslexia.
