Disability Services helps students who have a disability to access reasonable adjustments, and provides advice to prospective students about support services.
Reasonable adjustments are any changes to the academic environment that provide a student with a disability the best possible opportunity to succeed in their studies.
As the main point of contact and support for students with disabilities, Disability Services works closely with both administration and academic departments of the University.
This is to ensure that appropriate arrangements relating to teaching and assessment are made for students with disabilities, while maintaining the academic integrity and core requirements of individual courses.
Disability Services encourages independence, responsibility and autonomy in the students that access this service.
Once registered, students have access to an online service request system which allows them to manage their needs independently and in their own time.
If you're a student looking for support, visit the student website to register with Disability Services and to find more information on the services and adjustments that we offer.
If you're a staff member looking for support, visit the Intranet for more information.
We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions about the services we provide.
In 2003, we launched our first disability plan years ago we launched our first Disability Action Plan. Since then, we have demonstrated a track record of ensuring all students, staff and visitors have the same chance to excel at and enjoy our university.
