Disability support

Deciding whether to register

You are not obligated to disclose a disability or medical condition to the University, but if you would like to access academic or environment-related adjustments, disclosing enables us to determine the kind of assistance that could be most useful to you.

The following questions might help you decide whether to register.

  • Is my disability making it harder to meet the requirements of my studies?
  • Is my disability contributing to a poor experience at university?
  • Do I feel disadvantaged at university by my disability?
  • Am I relying on Special Consideration to counter the impact of my disability.

If you’re still unsure you can always discuss your situation with a Disability Officer.

Disclosing information and confidentiality

Registering with us might involve:

  • disclosing your disability or impairment
  • telling us how it impacts your studies and what adjustments you may require
  • providing supporting documents.

Telling Disability Services about the nature of your disability or impairment doesn’t mean you’re telling everyone on campus.

Disability Services never discloses your diagnosis to University staff, but instead refers to the impacts of your condition when communicating with your faculty or school to organise and implement support.
