Disability and Dyslexia Support Service

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.

In an academic context, ‘everyday activities’ can mean study-related tasks like sitting exams, reading, planning and writing assignments, attending classes and taking notes in them or delivering presentations.

We support students who:

  • have a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia, dyspraxia or ADHD
  • have a mental health condition such as depression or an anxiety disorder
  • have a long standing illness or health condition such as asthma, epilepsy or chronic fatigue syndrome
  • have an autism spectrum condition
  • are blind or partially sighted
  • have a physical impairment or mobility difficulty
  • are deaf or hard of hearing
  • have a speech, language or communication difficulty (e.g. a stammer)

This is not an exhaustive list; if you have an impairment or condition that is not covered here but which has an impact on your studies please contact us to discuss what support we can offer you.
