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.

- long term health conditions
- mental health conditions
- autism spectrum conditions (such as Asperger syndrome)
- sensory impairments
- mobility difficulties
- stammering (further details here)
We offer bespoke disability-related support to help identify the most appropriate support, such as mentoring, study skills and exam support, further details are here. We help you to locate funding 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, please contact us 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.
