If you have a disability or medical condition that means you require help or assistance in practical or academic matters, it is advisable to contact the Disabled Student Support team at your earliest convenience.
The team can advise you on a range of matters, including special exam arrangements and the Disabled Student Allowance (this allowance can help you cover any equipment or support costs you may have).
In addition, the 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 arrangements, the DSA and other forms of support for students with specific learning difficulties from our Access and Disability and Special Learning Difficulties (SpLD) pages.
