Funding for Disabled Students

Funding for International/EU students

You should initially contact your home government for information about accessing appropriate funding. Your sponsors may also be able to provide you with an additional grant to cover any extra expenses you have because of your disability. For example, people on the EU Socrates/Erasmus exchange programme can apply for grants, which are higher than normal study grants, to offset additional costs incurred by specific difficulties.

If you are not eligible for any external funding, the University will work with you to access your needs and implements appropriate reasonable adjustments to support you in your studies e.g. loan of specialist equipment and software, development of a support document to aid communication to appropriate members of staff, regular adviser reviews etc.
