Students are encouraged to meet with a Disability Adviser so that we can discuss what reasonable adjustments may be helpful to enable a student 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).
Our recommendations are informed by evidence; students are asked to provide any relevant, recent medical or other professional evidence. If you don't already have any evidence you can ask a medical professional to complete this medical evidence form. The same evidence can also be used to apply for the Disabled Student Allowances.
Once a student has met with the Disability Team, the adviser will contact the student's department (with their permission) to put forward 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.
