Support for Students

Disability and Reasonable Adjustments

Disabled students who require any disability related reasonable adjustments such as new equipment or changes to teaching practices should contact Disability Advice and Guidance. Students with a Mental Health condition can also contact the Mental Health Advisory Service or the Counselling Service. We advise that this is done at the earliest opportunity to ensure that support is in place. Prospectice students with questions about disability support and reasonable adjustments should contact Disability Advice and Guidance.
