There are dedicated Disability Advisers for each academic school.

Disability Advisers provide advice and support with:

  • Disabled Student Allowances (DSAs)
  • Exam adjustments
  • Study related adjustments
  • Signposting to and liaison with specialist support services and academic departments.

Disability Advisers can also work with you to create a Learning Support Plan (LSP) or Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP). With your permission, we share these with other relevant members of staff.

We may ask you to complete a form as part of your appointment:
