Equal access to university life is a vital part of every student experience, and our team of Disability Inclusion staff are here to make sure it happens for you.

We welcome people with disabilities, long term health conditions, and specific learning difficulties, and are committed to providing students with positive support in all aspects of University life.

 
 
We welcome students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Our disability and inclusion team supports students with temporary or long-term health conditions, disabilities and additional needs.

The use of technology can be a major factor in supporting you with disabilities, health conditions or specific learning differences. We have staff with knowledge of specialist technology, software and equipment and they can help, advise and support you with it. We can provide information and practical help to enable you to develop techniques and strategies that assist with studying and learning.
 

School Disability Contacts (SDCs)

School Disability Contacts (SDCs) are members of academic staff who act as points of contact for students who require additional support due to a disability, medical condition or specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia.

Each School may have one or more SDCs who liaise closely with the Disability Inclusion Team. The role includes directing students who request support, sharing information with academic staff and collating copies of learning profiles.
