If you require adjustments to be made to ensure access to lectures, tutorials or exams, or any other aspect of your studies, Student Support can help and signpost you to other University services, such as the Student Disability Service.
Student Disability Service
The Student Disability Service support students with dyslexia, mental health issues, students on the autistic spectrum, as well as those who have physical and sensory impairments.
The service can support you by setting up a Learning Profile, helping with access to disability funding, and providing other forms of support, such as proofreaders. If you wish to discuss your support options please talk to a member of the disability advisory staff who will work with you to assess your individual requirements.
The service is in high demand, so please contact them as soon as possible and be patient if they are busy.
Disability Service meeting - what to expect
When meeting with a Disability Advisor you can discuss the possible learning support available to you. The advisor may set up a Learning Profile on your student record which outlines the adjustments required to support you with your studies.
You will be expected to provide the Student Disability Service with evidence of your disability/illness - either a letter from your GP or specialist or evidence of specific learning difficulty. If you do not have the necessary evidence, the Disability Office can put you in touch with an independent Educational Psychologist.
