Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD)


The University is pleased to welcome students with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD).  SpLD includes things like dyslexia, dyspraxia/DCD, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and ADHD.  If you have (or suspect you may have) an SpLD you may require help or assistance in practical or academic matters it is advisable to contact the advisors within the Advisory team at your earliest convenience.

We can offer screenings and advise on special exam arrangements and the Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) which can provide money for equipment and support.  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 and assessment arrangements, DSA and additional support for students with specific learning difficulties from our Access and Disability and Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) pages.

For more information, please read our Disability and SpLD Advice Booklet.

If you have or suspect you have an SpLD, you are advised to make contact with the advisors (Disabled Student Advisor and SpLD Needs Assessor and Advisor) within the Advisory team for more information and advice by:
