Student Wellbeing - Disability

Student Wellbeing - Disability Advisers offer Specialist Advice and guidance for all students with disabilities.

 “We are all different. There is no such thing as a standard or run of the mill human being – but we share the same spirit. What is important is that we have the ability to create. This creativity can take many forms – from physical achievements to theoretical physics. However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at.”

-Prof..Stephen Hawking  (29 August 2012).


On these pages you will find a whole range of information about disability services at the University of Hertfordshire and how we can help to ensure that a disability does not present any unnecessary barriers to learning or working with us. 


Support for Studying at University:

If you have a disability or difficulty which impacts on your ability to access University fully, please do contact us to discuss the most appropriate support available for you.

Not all students who need support will consider themselves disabled, but if you do find that you need some help or support, please come and have a chat to find out what is available for you.

The advisers within Student Wellbeing can agree adjustments and support you to share information with your academic team so that you are able to engage fully with your studies. 


Students should self-refer into our service by completing Academic Support for Your Disability form on Symplicity.
