2nd the UK and 3rd in the world for disability support

Our Disability Service provides support, information, advice and guidance for prospective and current disabled students.

By the term ‘disabled students’ we mean anyone with a physical or sensory impairment, mental health difficulties, students with long-term health conditions, students with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and students with Aspergers’ syndrome.

So although you might not define yourself as a disabled person, if you would benefit from support or adjustments to make sure you are not disadvantaged by your difficulties, we encourage you to contact the Disability Service.
