Macao Polytechnic Institute General Guidelines for Students with a Disability
To provide equal opportunity and necessary studying environment and facilities for students with a disability, the Macao Polytechnic Institute has devised the "General Guidelines for Students with a Disability" that academic and administrative units of MPI have to follow.
Applicants with a disability have the option to voluntarily disclose their disability status/conditions at admission or re-enrolment. If they choose to disclose their disabilities, they will also have to indicate whether they wish to have the special arrangements, such as admission examination waiver or special examination arrangements. In such case, applicants with disability need to notify the Macao Polytechnic Institute of the disability condition with submission of an assessment report from a registered medical practitioner and other documents/evidence of such diagnosis, latest upon submission of application so that it will allow sufficient time for MPI to evaluate special arrangement needed for the student when necessary.
