Disability and Dyslexia Support Service (DDSS)

You may be eligible for disability support if you have an impairment or condition that has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to carry out study-related tasks, such as:

  • reading
  • sitting exams
  • attending classes
  • taking notes in class
  • delivering presentations
  • planning and writing assignments

DDSS provide support and advice on setting up disability support, including how to organise support adjustments for your exams.

The deadline for setting up exam support is usually in week 9 of each semester.

In ScHARR, we also encourage you to speak to your personal tutor.

The departmental disability liaison officer, Charlotte Hollins, helps ensure that arrangements recommended by DDSS are put in place in the department.
