Disability support and inclusion

If you have a disability, long term health condition, mental health condition or a specific learning difficulty (SpLD), then additional support is available to you.

You can access support throughout your time as a student, from application to graduation.

You might not feel you have a disability, or you may dislike the term, but if you experience any barriers to learning we are here to help. Current students access support for a wide range of disabilities and health conditions including:

  • Asperger's and autism
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Dyslexia, dyspraxia, and AD(H)D
  • Eating disorders
  • Epilepsy, diabetes and IBS
