Disabled applicants

We aim to support your student life by offering Disability & Dyslexia related advice, guidance and services.

If you have a physical or sensory impairment, a long term medical condition, a specific learning difficulty (such as dyslexia) or a mental health difficulty then we would like you to tell us when you apply. If you tell us about your disability, we will treat it in a confidential, positive and constructive way.

Telling us early on enables our Disability and Dyslexia Service to contact you to find out what adjustments and support you may need to access your programme of study and other University facilities, such as accommodation. We can also advise you on disability related financial support.

It is particularly important to disclose this information to us if you are applying to one of the health programmes such as medicine, nursing, pharmacy or optometry, which have 'fitness to practise' requirements.

We can arrange access visits so that you can find out more about routes across the University estate and the student accommodation available to you.

You can find more detailed information on our Student Support pages.
