Disability Support

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, get in touch with the university now so that your support needs can be put in place as early as possible.

Help available:

  • 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

Library staff will also help with practical matters such as finding books, getting books to your campus, authorising longer loans if necessary.
