University Support for All Students With Disabilities, Long Term Health Conditions or Learning Difficulties
TOP TIP: if you did not tick the box on your UCAS application to declare that you have a disability, get in touch with the university now so that your support needs can be put in place as early as possible.
Help is available with:
- Assessing your individual needs
- Discussing the necessary adjustments or support for lectures, tutorials, exams, alternative assessments, practical sessions, accommodation.
- Liaising with academic and other staff (with your consent).
- Helping you to apply for Disabled Students Allowance (UK and eligible EU students only)
- Arranging equipment loans.
- Offering training in specialist equipment and software.
- Helping to get a scribe for notetaking if necessary.
- Signposting to useful study tools and other resources within the university.
- Continuing support throughout your studies.
More information is available on MyNapier.
Library staff will also help with practical matters such as finding books, getting books to your campus, authorising longer loans if necessary. Contact them for an appointment. Library staff also offer study skills support to all students.
if you have a concern which you would like to discuss in confidence with our independent ENSA Advice service, book an appointment. Our offices are accessible on all 3 campuses. There is a hearing loop in the Merchiston campus advice room.
