ASD/Asperger Syndrome

Three University of Warwick students with ASD talk about what to think about when starting university.

Elinor talks about what to consider when choosing your university; where to live, which course and university to choose, support and disclosure

Kenneth talks about adapting to university life, disclosure and support.

Richard talks about what to consider when choosing your university; where to live, which university to choose, support and disclosure. Richard explains why he chose to live at home whilst studying for his degree.

We can meet with you on an individual basis and discuss what would be helpful for you whilst at university. We can offer support in:
  • Recommending reasonable adjustments for exams in place, for example a sole venue, extra time or rest breaks 

  • Arrange specialist mentoring

  • Access to specialist study skills support to help with time management, essay writing principles, reading strategies, exam preparation strategies etc. Please note that study skill support is not subject specific and is not subject tuition. For any subject academic related issues students are advised to speak to their personal tutor.

  • Support with suitable on campus accommodation

  • Support you to access on campus accommodation throughout your stay at Warwick

  • Liaise with your department to help them understand what is helpful for you and what you may find challenging

  • Invite you to the early arrivals programme so that you can come to campus early and settle into your accommodation

  • Help you apply for Disabled Student Allowance
  • Invite you to one of our group feedback sessions to discuss your experience of support and any future improvements
