How we can help

Preparing for Online Exams : Some tips on how you can best prepare and manage online assessments.

At an appointment with the Disability Team you can discuss:

  • the impact of disability on your studies and any reasonable adjustments required
  • one to one support arrangements such as specialist study skills, specialist mental health mentoring and specialist AS mentoring.
  • alternative exam arrangements
  • liaising with your Department
  • a screening for specific learning differences such as dyslexia and referral for an external full assessment
  • advice on available funding for support, such as the Disabled Student Allowances, and guidance on the application process
  • accessible on campus accommodation and campus accessibility matters
  • referral and signposting to other services in Wellbeing Support Services and across the University
  • Signposting to other available resources, such as in the Library
Supporting Evidence

We will ask you to provide supporting evidence of your disability to inform the discussion we will have with you about support and reasonable adjustments. That could be a full diagnostic report for Specific Learning Differences, a medical letter, or other. If you don't have any evidence you can ask a medical professional to complete this medical evidence form and bring it with you to the appointment. Please note that in the case of Specific Learning Differences a comprehensive diagnostic report will be required.
