Lead Scotland (Specialists in Linking Education and Disability) and the NUS (National Union of Students) are seeking your views on the Scottish Government review of Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).
Our Annual Report is now available for download. The report was produced in January 2013 and covers academic year 2011 -12. Read about key features of the service provision, users of the Student Disability Service (SDS) and our service evaluation with evaluation responses from students and a case study on a student with Asperger Syndrome.
The deadline date from Academic Registry to arrange support for exams in April/May is March 15th and no support arrangements can be put in place after this date.
There is guidance, from the Equality and Human Rights Commission, now available for students explaining your equality rights in higher education.
Results of the 2011-12 student evaluation of the Student Disability Service are now available.
If you are a disabled student and feel that you need support with your course of studies, please contact us as soon as possible.
The Student Disability Service is hoping to develop short video clips that will provide information to students about some of the support that is available. We need people who would be prepared to be interviewed on film for which you will get paid. We would welcome contributions from current or past students.
