Disability support to be reviewed

The University attaches the utmost importance to supporting all our students to study and thrive, and we work closely with student representatives on this.

We have more than doubled our spend on student disability services since 2010 and more than doubled our spend on student counselling services during the same period.

Improving facilities

Through our Estates Programme, we have added to the number of buildings that are fully accessible.

We will be making further improvements to teaching spaces, such as installation of additional induction loops and improved seating and ramps.

We are, of course, fully committed to continuing to work with our students to make further improvements.

Review announced

To that end, we will be conducting a review of our current arrangements to support students with disabilities, with a remit to recommend options for a way forward.

The review will be led by Vice Principal People and Culture Professor Jane Norman, and include a EUSA sabbatical officer, a member of University Court and the Deputy Secretary Student Experience.

Full details of the review team and scope will be issued shortly.
