How to access disability support for your studies

Let us know you wish to access disability-related study support as soon as possible.

You can do this before you arrive via your UCAS / University application form or at any time during your studies.


Before you arrive

If you have told us about your disability on your application form and accept an offer of a place to study here, we will contact you during the summer period to introduce our team and to explore your support needs.

If you have not disclosed on your university application form and wish to, email to let us know.

During your studies

You can disclose your disability at any point during your studies by uploading your supporting documentation to the Student Services HUB, contacting our Disability Coaches or speaking with your Departmental Disability Contact.

Providing evidence

We require supporting documentation regarding your disability before support can be arranged. The type of documentation that we require will depend on your individual circumstances, but may for example be a doctor’s or specialist’s letter or Educational Psychological Report. 

Request a review

Do you have a Student Support Information Sheet (SSIS) and need to discuss your current support? Use this form to request a review with the Disability Advice and Guidance team.


Speak to a Disability coach

If you are unable to find the answer to your query on our web pages, please visit our Disability Coaches drop-in during term time from 11am-3pm in the Alsop Building, University Square (no appointment needed).
