You are welcome to come and discuss the various support options available before starting at the University. We can give you examples of the types of reasonable adjustments that are sometimes made for students.
Appointments with the Disability & Learner Support team are available on Applicant Visit Days. These days give offer-holders the opportunity to find out further information about the student support services.
Tell us about your Disability or Specific Learning Difficulty
- You can do this on your UCAS form
- Update your details when you register
- Contact Disability & Learner Support
Making a Reasonable Adjustment Plan (RAP) appointment with a Disability Adviser
- Send Disability & Learner Support a copy of your medical evidence or Educational Psychology report and complete our registration form.
- If you do not have medical evidence, you can use our medical evidence form to request this from a medical professional.
- If you were assessed for a Specific Learning Difficulty aged 16 or older, please send us a copy as it may be suitable for us to put support in place for you without you having to be reassessed. We can also support students to access Educational Psychology Assessments.
- We will then contact you to arrange an appointment with a Disability Adviser.
Apply for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA)
- Applications for DSA can take approximately 12 weeks. We would therefore advise that you apply before starting your course.
- More information on DSA can be found on the funding of support page.
