Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD)

Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD)

We are very pleased to welcome students with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD). SpLD includes things like dyslexia, dyspraxia/DCD, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and ADHD.

If you have an SpLD and require help or assistance in practical or academic matters, please contact the Advisory Service as soon as you can.

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 Advisory team will liaise with and offer advice to academic schools to ensure that a support package is in place to give you the most appropriate means of help you throughout your time at university. All information is confidential, and will only be passed on to relevant members of staff with your approval.

If you have or suspect you have an SpLD, you are advised to make contact with the team for more information and advice by:
