We take all practicable steps to ensure that disabled students can participate in their studies without disadvantage, and can make full use of the University's academic and support services.

If you have an impairment or condition which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to carry out day-to-day activities, then you may be eligible for disability support.
