Current students

Here at the University, we help current students who have a disability to access the support that they need.

This includes everyone, whether you’re an undergraduate, postgraduate, EU or International student. Our Disability Advisory and Support Service is entirely confidential.

What do you mean by Disability?

We know that not everyone who uses our services thinks of themselves as disabled. We use the term ‘disability’ as it’s used in Equality Law.

This legislation states that the definition of disability is any condition which has a significant, adverse and long-term effect on a person’s ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.

Can you give me some examples?

We see students with a range of difficulties including, but not limited to:

  • autism spectrum condition (ASC)
  • dyslexia, dyspraxia and other specific learning difficulties;
  • mental health difficulties;
  • mobility impairments;
  • sensory impairments;
  • unseen disabilities like epilepsy, HIV, AIDS and chronic fatigue.

We offer a wide range of services in order to help you make the most of your University experience. Many of the answers to your questions can be found on this website, but if you have any queries, please feel free to contact us.
