  Making the most of your support

We are here to help you make the most of your support at Edinburgh Napier. You will find practical information to help you while you are studying and ensure you get the best opportunities to achieve your goals.

​If you have a disability or health condition for which you require support, you are strongly encouraged to make arrangements to speak to an Adviser about your support needs at the earliest opportunity. 

Our ambition as a University is to become as inclusive as possible.  That will mean that, as much as we can, we look to make sure support is available without you needing to apply for additional funding

As a first step while you settle into your new course and as we get to know you, we will normally look to match whatever support you have had at school or college.  If you have had a support plan in the past, it is always helpful if you can bring that to your first meeting with one of our Advisers.

This first meeting is important, even if you have included information on your UCAS  or direct entry application form, or you have mentioned your difficulties to an academic member of staff.  We can help you look ahead, predict any difficulties you might experience because of how your course is taught and assessed – or because of how Edinburgh Napier operates generally – and take steps to help you avoid any of those problems.

Please note that support,including exam adjustments, are only put in place  once you have discussed and agreed them with an Adviser in the Disability & Inclusion Team.

We take confidentiality seriously

​To do a good job on your behalf, we need to speak with other key members of staff, normally including your School Disability Contact, lecturers and the exams team.  We will not share information about you without  your consent. Your Adviser will ask you to sign a form listing who we expect to need to speak with on your behalf and showing that you are happy for us to do this.  You can find out more on how the University handles your personal information and the
Disability & Inclusion Team’s Privacy notice.
