Accessibility service

The Accessibility service exists to meet the following aims:

  • to enable students with disabilities to participate fully in campus activities
  • to act as a resource for staff and students
  • to disseminate good practices and information

The Accessibility service will:

  • provide information, arrange visits, interview, and give an induction to prospective disabled students
  • advise and inform on sources of funding, benefits, recreation etc
  • identify any technical or equipment needs
  • recommend equipment and enabling aids
  • assist in applying for the relevant allowance
  • act as a focal point for disabled students
  • investigate ways to improve physical access to various sites
  • work alongside staff to raise awareness of various disability issues
  • liaise with external supporting organisations and authorities

We have a wide range of information available on various issues related to disability, and we also have enabling aids and equipment available to students to perform various tasks related to study.
