The aim of the Disability Service (and the wider Student Support Service) is to assist students so that they are able to realise their potential, participate fully in university life and be well prepared for their future. These pages provide a guide to the services offered to disabled students and those seeking assessment for specific learning difficulties.
Our services are available to all students who have a condition that has a 'substantial adverse effect on the conduct of daily life' ('disability' as defined by the Equality Act 2010). In the university context this includes reading, writing, attendance at lectures, taking exams, making notes, working in groups, giving presentations and so forth.
You can make an appointment to see a Disability Adviser by contacting the Student Support Centre Reception on 01603 592761 or via email email@example.com or you can complete a self-referral form that allows you to let us know what your specific question or difficulty is. Please follow this link to access the form.
Initial appointments may last up to 50 minutes and subsequent appointments will be made according to need.
