Equality and Diversity
The School is committed to creating an inclusive culture based on equality and diversity, and to providing an accessible learning environment for all students. Every applicant to the School is considered on an individual basis and we welcome applications from disabled people.
If you would like to discuss any specific requirements you may have, you are invited to contact either the University Disability and Dyslexia Service or the School disability support officer.
Once studying, support is available within the School for students with particular needs or disabilities through personal tutors, disability contacts, and the Equality and Diversity committee. Undergraduate and postgraduate students sit on this committee and you can ask them to raise issues with the committee on your behalf.
In the School, we encourage all students to discuss any specific requirements they may have with their personal tutors and/or with individual lecturers. Adjustments such as extra time in examinations or flexibility in coursework assessments will be possible in many cases. The School has also developed specific policies for marking the work of students who struggle with written language as a result of disability, such as some deaf or dyslexic students.
Above all, our aim is to support you in developing the skills and competences required for successful completion of your degree here at Cardiff University.
