Reasonable adjustments

The University of Birmingham strives to be an inclusive learning community, in which every effort is made to overcome barriers to participation, enabling all students to get the most out of university life and have the opportunity to engage fully and perform on an equal basis with their peers.

Adjustments to admissions or learning

If you are a student wishing to find out more about reasonable adjustments to the admissions process or to the delivery of teaching, please contact Learning Support.

Adjustments to examination procedures

Alternative exam arrangements can be made for students with disabilities, including specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia, mental health difficulties, autism or Asperger's and other health conditions.

All students requiring any form of alternative exam arrangements need to register with our service and provide appropriate supporting evidence. Please see evidence guidance for more infomation. 

Guides for staff

A guide to reasonable adjustments for students has been produced for all University staff. It applies to all students with a range of impairments, including prospective students, applicants, full and part-time undergraduates, post-graduates, distance-learning students and international students.

There is also information for staff wishing to find out about reasonable adjustments in the workplace.
