The Student Voice

‌‌‌‌‌‌The Student Voice

It is important that disabled students have the opportunity to be involved in making decisions about the kind of support and facilities available within the University and have their collective views heard as part of the University's consultation processes.

The Disabled Students' Network (DSN)

The DSN is an informal group, comprising of a number of disabled students, facilitated by Disability Advice and Guidance, which meets several times a year to discuss issues, evaluate services and provide direct input into policies and procedures which are relevant to the disabled students' experience at the University of Liverpool.

It is also an opportunity to meet other disabled students within a confidential environment, to share experiences and form supportive networks.


The DSN timetable of events for Semester 2 (2018/19) can be found by clicking the link below:
