Aristotle University denies regulations barring disabled students

The senate of the Thessaloniki’s Aristotle University has denied reports that regulations at the Department of Physics prohibit the enrollment of students with certain disabilities, following a complaint by a blind 18-year-old honor student who said his application to the school was rejected.
