Advice about your Disability

Student Wellbeing's Disability and Mental Health teams offer advice and guidance about the support which may be available to you during your studies at the University

Each year at the University we welcome a significant number of students who disclose a disability.

Students who access support say it is invaluable and equips them with the skills and support which they need to succeed in their studies.

Disability Advisers and Mental Health Advisers are available to discuss your support needs. 

To ensure the safety of all Students and Staff we will deliver an online and telephone based service. All of our advisors and counsellors are well equipped to work online, without compromising on the quality of the support we offer.

 

Face – face appointments will only be delivered for those with specific requirements and where online appointments are deemed unsuitable. In these cases, students’ needs will be assessed and UH and Government guidance will be followed at all times regarding face coverings and PPE

Student should self-refer into our service via: https://studentwellbeing.herts.ac.uk/Wellbeing/ and if you have any questions do contact us via: studentwellbeing@herts.ac.uk or call us on: 01707 284453

If you have a disability it is strongly recommended that you make contact with an Adviser when you register at the University, although you can contact them at any time during your studies.

They can complete a Study Needs Agreement (SNA) identifying the adjustments and support that will be made for you as a disabled student.
