Booking a Diagnostic Assessment

If you want to book a diagnostic assessment for Dyslexia or Dyspraxia , you can contact Student Wellbeing to make an appointment to talk with an Adviser, or you can ask for information about booking the Diagnostic Assessment.

A Diagnostic Assessment is only necessary if you really want to find out if you have a Specific Learning Difficulty such as Dyslexia or Dyspraxia.  There is a charge to all students, but the service is heavily subsidised by the University. 


All students who meet the criteria below can request information from 

You must:

  • Be registered on a course at the University of Hertfordshire (including consortium colleges West Herts, North Herts, Oaklands and HRC)
  • Have one full semester of study left on your course when you make your payment and book the assessment 
  • Not already have a diagnostic assessment which meets the DSA requirements
  • Not have a conflicting condition which would negate the outcome of an assessment 
  • Not be studying at a partner or affiliate college/university

The best way to find out if an assessment is necessary is to make an appointment to meet with a Disability Adviser to discuss your difficulties and they can advise on the best course of action.

If you want to apply for a Disabled Students' Allowance for support with your Specific Learning Difficulty, you will need to provide a copy of a full diagnostic assessment, or medical evidence which outlines your condition and the impact on your studies.
