We support students with a range of disabilities, learning difficulties and other health and mental health conditions.

What we do

We give confidential advice and information to disabled students about options for disability-related study support. We also advise staff who teach and support disabled students.

How we can help

We provide support to students with a wide range of disabilities, including but not limited to:

  • learning difficulties (such as dyslexia or dyspraxia) 
  • health and mental health conditions
  • autism spectrum conditions (such as Asperger syndrome)
  • sensory impairments
  • mobility difficulties

We offer tailored case-by-case disability-related support. We identify if there is support we can offer, such as mentoring, study skills and exam support. We can also advise on sources of funding for disability-related study support.

We work with schools, faculties and external organisations to help you get what you need to make the most of your time at University.

You can come to us for support at any time during your time at university. If you have not started yet, get in touch before you arrive so we can get support ready for when teaching starts.

Things we can't help with

We do not provide medication, healthcare or treat acute medical or psychological issues. We also do not provide personal care or daily living support, but we can advise you on how to access this type of support.

We do not provide support for temporary illness, injury or pregnancy. If they are affecting your studies, you can speak to your school.
