What to bring to the appointment

Please bring supporting professional evidence of disability. This could be:

  • A letter from your GP or consultant
  • For students with dyslexia: an assessment from a Chartered Educational Psychologist

Please ask if you are not sure what kind of evidence we require.


How long is the appointment?

Your first appointment will be a needs assessment and take up to 2 hours. Following review appointments will only be 30 minutes or less.


What will happen at the appointment?

The Disability Adviser will discuss with you:

  • How your disability will affect your ability to study on course,
  • Support needs for lectures, tutorials, lab work and field trips,
  • Support for exams,
  • Using campus facilities such as the Library.

The Disability Adviser will also tell you about the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA), and if you are eligible for DSA, will explain how you can claim it.

Find out more about the DSA on SAAS website


Who we inform about your disability and support needs

Usually we will inform only your Adviser of Studies and the Disability Co-ordinators in School(s) in which you are studying. However, if you wish we can inform Tutors and Course Co-ordinators as well. You can confirm this during your appointment.

If you require support outwith your academic subjects, e.g. in the Library or your University accommodation, we will also forward the information to these services.
