Disabled Student Support

Students Working Library

The University is pleased to welcome students with a disability.  Should you have a disability or medical condition that means you may require help or assistance in practical or academic matters, it is advisable to contact the team at your earliest convenience.

The team can advise on special exam arrangements, the Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) which can provide money for equipment and support.  In addition, the Disability team will liaise with and offer advice to academic schools to ensure that a comprehensive enhancement package is in place which results in the most appropriate means of supporting you throughout your time at University.  All information is treated in confidence and will only be passed on to relevant members of staff with your approval.

You can find out more about our facilities, equipment, exam and assessment arrangements, DSA and additional support for students with specific learning difficulties from our Access and Disability and Special Learning Difficulties (SpLD) pages.


If you have or suspect you have a disability, you are advised to make contact with the Disability team (Disabled Student Advisor and SpLD Needs Assessor and Advisor) for more information and advice:
