My online screening results for specific learning difficulties (SpLDs) such as dyslexia are 'borderline'/'at risk'. Can I apply for support with funding for a full diagnostic assessment?

If you have a household income of less than £36,000 and are unable to pay for the assessment yourself, you may be able to obtain financial assistance towards the cost of a full diagnostic assessment.

To apply, complete the application form, attaching a copy of the outcome of your online screening, which must be 'borderline' or 'at risk'.

The University will use your screening results solely for the purpose of determining eligibility for funding. We will make no representation as to the accuracy or otherwise of the results themselves.

The maximum award is £325. The full cost of the assessment may be more than this. If your application for support is successful, you will need to fund any additional costs. Assessments may cost between £300 and £600.

It takes around two weeks for us to reach a decision about the funding. An email regarding this will be sent to your University email account, with any award being paid into your bank account.

If you do not qualify for financial assistance, it is your responsibility to cover the whole cost of the full diagnostic assessment.
