Disability and dyslexia support

Ensure you have registered with the Student Disability Service to enable your support needs to be met.

If you haven't already liaised with the Student Disability Service as an applicant prior to your arrival, then please book an initial appointment with a Disability Adviser as soon as you can.

You will need to provide suitable evidence of your disability for your support needs to be discussed and appropriate reasonable adjustments implemented to support your studies. If you are unsure if you have suitable evidence, we advise you to contact us prior to booking an initial appointment.

If you have applied for further support through the disabled students allowance (DSA), the Student Disability Service also offers a DSA needs assessment centre. If you have been asked to arrange a needs assessment, please email us at or phone +44 (0)29 2087 9127.

If you have already interacted with the service as an applicant, and have agreed on what support will benefit you in your studies, you can check to see whether this support has been agreed to be implemented by the appropriate departments, such as your School, libraries, Registry, etc. by logging onto your SIMS account. Your Disability Adviser should have advised you as to whether you still need to book an initial appointment at arrival in Cardiff.

If you have any queries about accessing your support, please make contact with us as soon as possible.
