What Does the Disability Team Do?


The Disability Team is here to support you from application throughout your studies, to graduation. The Disability Team is a confidential advice and support service, committed to assisting students with additional needs, to Live, Study and Enjoy student life.  You may not consider yourself to have a disability, but feel you have additional support needs which you would like to discuss.  We are here to advise you, provide you with information and where appropriate, offer you support for a variety of disabilities and additional needs

For students with a disability or additional needs the types of support you may be entitled to are as follows: 

  • Arrange screening for Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs) and arrange diagnostic assessments.

  • Advise on funding available for disability related support, which for home students includes Disabled Students Allowance (DSAs)
