Disability Advisers

If you have a disability it is strongly recommended that you make contact with a Disability 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 should be made for you as a disabled student.

Specialist Tuition

Tuition is not subject specific, it provides support for students with a Specific Learning Difficulty by teaching them the skills and strategies that will be useful during their studies.

Specialist Mentors

The mentors have a range of skills and experience of working with disabled students in a higher education setting. Mentors provide Support primarily for students with Asperger’s Syndrome, Autistic Spectrum Conditions and Mental Health difficulties.

Mentoring supports students to access university life and academia. A mentor will work closely with you to develop strategies to maximise your time at University.

Exam Adjustments

Many students are entitled to  adjustments during their exams. If you need adjustments for your exams, or want to find out what yo uare entitle to,  it is essential that you speak to someone in Student Wellbeing to arrange this.
