Disability Advice and Support

Advice and support

Our disability advisors and our AccessAbility team provide information and advice for students with a disability or long term health condition. This can include specific learning difficulties, long term health conditions, sensory or mobility impairments, autism spectrum conditions and mental health difficulties. The team can:

  • create an Individual Learning Plan, and liaise with your department to recommend study adjustments (e.g. exam arrangements);
  • help you apply for specialist one-to-one support and equipment;
  • help you access support arrangements for specific accommodation and car parking permits;
  • signpost you to other services at the university and locally.

If you are a prospective student, we have a range of information and resources available for you pre-arrival. You can also book an appointment with our team to discuss your circumstances and support needs.

If you are a current student, you can declare your disability to us through our online form, upload medical evidence and make an appointment to discuss your support needs.
