    Due to the current situation regarding COVID 19, please do NOT contact your GP or medical professional to seek further evidence at this time.  Therefore, if you do not currently have medical evidence that follows the universities guidelines then we recommend that you provide us with any documentation that you may have relating to your diagnosis. 

    We require evidence of your disability in order to put appropriate support in place for you.

    Further information can be found in Appendix C of the Policy Regarding Reasonable Adjustments and Support for Disabled Students 2020

    Our evidence requirments feature below; though due to the current situation regarding COVID 19, please DO NOT contact your GP or medical professional to seek further evidence at this time.

    If you do not currently have medical evidence that follows the universities guidelines then we recommend that you provide us with any documentation that you may have relating to your diagnosis by e-mail to disteam@liverpool.ac.uk

    Evidence should be in the format of a letter, medical evidence template, or report and must be written in English, dated, and signed by the health professional.  It should be either on letter-headed paper, or have the practice stamp on it.

    The documentation also needs to have been recently provided; i.e. within the last twelve months for fluctuating disabilities; and within the last three years for a permanent disability unless the situation changes. (Please refer to the SpLD FAQ for evidence requirements for specific learning difficulties, e.g. Dyslexia).

    Please refer to the Supporting Documentation Guidance for details of what should be included in your evidence documentation.

    It is your responsibility to obtain suitable evidence and the University is not able to cover any associated costs. If acquiring evidence is going to leave you in financial hardship, you may be eligible to apply to the University Hardship Fund
