Meet the Student Disability Service team

The Student Disability Service is holding an Open Day on Wednesday 23 August 2017.

All staff are invited to attend the event to meet the Student Disability Service (SDS) team and find out more about how they support students. 

The Open Day takes place from 10am-4pm in the Project Room at 50 George Square.

If you wish to attend, please register your interest via Event Booking on MyEd.

Student support

SDS staff will be at various information stands to talk about the many ways that the service provides support for students.

These include reasonable adjustments, assistive software and ergonomic equipment, disabled students' allowance funding, the roles of student support assistants, and the new student record system. 

Interactive sessions will be running during the day, at which staff can meet a small group of students who will talk about the support they have received while studying at Edinburgh.

There will also be sessions where Advisors will demonstrate the dyslexia screening process and feedback on a dyslexia assessment report. Places for these sessions are limited and can be booked via Event Booking on MyEd.

Please contact the Student Disability Service ( if you have any questions.
