We will ensure you have everything you need to succeed, supporting you to be your best. We are open and believe that everyone has the right to learn.
We are committed to widening participation and provide a range of services to enable those with disability or specific learning difficulty (SpLD) to access their chosen course, including adjustments to formal timed examinations, digital recorders, assistance in the library and an individualised disability/SpLD action plan. Access to a range of non-medical help services such as practical support, note taking, specialist mentoring and study skills is also offered.
Counselling and therapy can give you time to explore what is going on in your life in a safe setting. Our Psychological Wellbeing Service incorporates counselling, therapy and mental health mentoring. Our psychological therapists offer confidential support and advice on a wide range of issues including how to access services provided by the NHS and Social Services, as well as support for disabled students.
All of our campuses have accessible learning and teaching spaces and adapted residential accommodation. The university provides a variety of assistive software and has collated more than 100 free accessibility apps for general use, and provides specialist hardware such as larger keyboards and mice, and adjustable height desks.
We provide a supportive and nurturing environment where we know you as an individual, not a number, ensuring you are treated equally, fairly and with respect, whatever your needs.
