Support for disabled students
If you are a disabled student, there may be a little more to think about when going to university. We are here to help you reach your full potential and make sure you get the right level of support so that all aspects of your study are accessible.
You may identify as disabled or prefer not to use labels, but whatever you chose, it is important that you receive the support and adjustments you need.
We work with students with a range of impairments, both physical and sensory, as well as those with specific learning difficulties, autism spectrum conditions, long-term medical conditions, and mental health conditions.
Based in the Centre for Student Life, we are here to support you throughout your student journey, ensuring that you have access to advice and guidance as well adjustments and support needed to assist you in your studies.
Once you have been offered a place on a course, get in touch with us as soon as possible so we can help you with your transition into university life.
Here to support you
Our aim is to enable you to study as independently as possible and to create an inclusive learning environment. We offer advice and support which can include:
- exam access arrangements including, but not limited to extra time, use of ergonomic equipment and rest breaks
- help with identifying, requesting and making reasonable adjustments
- specialist services such as specialist study skills, mental health mentoring and support worker services
- funding advice and support on Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA) for home students.
