A number of support services are available for students who have a disability or a learning difficulty. Students are advised to contact student support services as soon as they start the programme or develop a disability. You can find out more information about the services the University provides by accessing the Disability Services section of student support. Available at the bottom of this web page are a number of downloadable PDF documents that you might find useful.
Supporting students with disabilities, as recognised by the Equality Act 2010, is about making reasonable adjustments on practice placements. Guidance and a form for completion to ensure that all reasonable adjustments are in place to support a student who has disabilities prior to her/his placement is available through the link below.
