Disability support

We offer a range of services and adjustments to help you achieve your academic goals and minimise the impact a disability can have on your experience at university.

Types of adjustment might include:

  • assessment and exam adjustments
  • alternative formatting
  • timetable adjustments
  • access to assistive technology
  • lecture support
  • library services.
