Support for Students with Disabilities

Documentary evidence should be recent and outline any implications expected to impact on the your studies.

 

A meeting with a Disability Liaison Officer will be made to develop a Student Support Plan which guides the provision and review of reasonable adjustments and supports. Adjustments will vary according to individual needs and could include access to our buildings, facilities and services and the provision of:

 

  • Assistive technology and other study aids 
  • In-class support services (assistance with reading, writing, participation & communication)
