Disability support

The University offers a wide range of support for students with disabilities.

Disability and Learning Support Service

The Disability and Learning Support Service is here to help if you have study support needs related to a disability, including dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties, mental health conditions, or other health conditions.

Disclosing your disability

If you have a disability, including specific learning difficulties, mental health and other health conditions, you should tell the University Disability and Learning Support Service as soon as possible to ensure that any support needs can be identified and appropriate provision discussed.

If you choose not to disclose your disability, you may not be able to access the full range of support available to you.

Mental health support

Worried about your mental health or someone else’s? One in four people will experience some sort of mental health difficulty in their lifetime, particularly during stressful times like starting university or leaving home. Confidential advice is available from mental health advisors who are qualified practitioners with a wealth of experience in supporting students.

Dyslexia and specific learning difficulties support

The Disability and Learning Support Service offers support for students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia and other specific learning difficulties.

There are also video resources to help you settle into university and make the most of your lectures and study time. These include advice on learning and study techniques.

What to expect from your supervisor

This resource can help postgraduate researchers understand what to expect from their supervisor.
