Student Disability Service

Support we provide

We can offer a range of support based on your individual needs and how your disability, learning difference or health condition affects your studies.

Support can be provided in a variety of ways:

Schedule of Adjustments

A list of modifications to how you experience your teaching and learning.  Examples could include sitting exams in a smaller room, extra time on short loan or reserve books, no penalties for poor spelling, grammar or structure in exams, tasks to be broken down into smaller chunks if requested. 

1:1 Specialist Support

We can engage professional staff to work with you on a 1:1 basis delivering specialised types of support such as Manual or Electronic Notetaking, Specific Learning Differences Tuition or Mental Health Mentoring.  You can find more information about the support provided by Mental Health and Autism Mentors here.

Provision of Assistive Technology

We can ensure that you are provided with the assistive equipment, software and technology that you need in order to be able to study effectively.  This may include ergonomic equipment, assistive applications or equipment such as digital voice recorders.
