Operation of individual sections of the Teiresias Centre

  • The operation of the Studies Section: Contact consultations with workers of the Teiresias Centre are possible, but they can still be replaced by online consultations (with the exceptions of consultations that for objective reasons cannot be held online and which are essential for your presence at classes). You can agree on a consultation with study counsellors the usual ways (over the phone or email) or agree on an online meeting through the reservation system. This is valid also for consultations with psychologists and psychotherapists.
  • The Teiresias Library, which provides digitalization of study materials for students who use assistive technology, is fully operational, using both type of communication (online and face-to-face). Usual preparation and distribution of study materials is in the process. If you need other materials apart from those you have already agreed on please contact us as usually (via e-mail).
  • The operation of the Visual Communication Section, the Administration Section, the Special ICT Section and Physical Accessibility Section is similar to that of the Studies Section.
