The Disability Service provides advice, guidance and information to prospective and current students with a range of disabilities including:
Sensory impairments (e.g. Visual Impairments, Hearing Impairments)
Medical conditions (e.g. Diabetes, Epilepsy, M.E. etc)
Mental Health difficulties
Specific Learning Difficulties (e.g. Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Autism etc)
We can provide advice & guidance on a range of issues including:
Disability Disclosure & reasonable adjustments
Diagnostic Assessments & Dyslexia Screening
Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA),
Learning support services
Disability legislation and policies
Accessible teaching and learning
The University takes seriously its commitment to disabled students and will make every reasonable effort to accommodate and make the necessary adjustments to meet individual support requirements. The Disability Service is able to make arrangements for reasonable adjustments such as library provisions, accommodation, teaching and learning or specific examination provisions. We are also able to provide assistance with the process of applying for additional support via Disabled Students' Allowances (DSA).
To ensure that the University is aware of, and able to respond to any specific support requirements, disabled students should disclose their disability on their application & enrolment forms or contact the Disability Service direct. Students are then invited to provide a more detailed disclosure of their disability and related support requirements by completing the DD1 form and returning to the Disability Service with supporting documentary evidence.
You can access the DD1 form in one of two ways:
by emailing a request to email@example.com
by phoning 01633 432657 to request a paper form
The earlier the University has the disclosure, the sooner provisions can be put in place, reducing the likelihood of problems further down the line.
