Reasonable Adjustments

Students are encouraged to meet with a Disability Adviser to discuss what reasonable adjustments may be helpful to enable them to engage with their course. Adjustments are considered on an individual basis and considered in the context of the impact of a disability or learning difference, University policies and the Equality Act (2010).

The recommendations of the Disability team are evidence-based; students are required to supply appropriate and recent medical evidence, or, in the case of a learning difference such as dyslexia or dyspraxia, a comprehensive diagnostic assessment completed by an Educational Psychologist or assessor with a suitable practicing certificate. If you don't already have any medical evidence you can ask a medical professional to complete this medical evidence form.

Once a student has met with Disability Services, the adviser will contact the student's department (with their permission) to recommend any specific adjustments. Although adjustments vary, it is not unusual for recommendations to be made relating to marking, deadlines, recording of lectures and access to lecture materials in advance. For further information please contact the Disability Team.

Students are recommended to make contact with the Disability Team as soon as possible and ideally before they begin their studies, so that reasonable adjustments can be made in good time.
