The Accessibility and Inclusive Learning team (including Dyslexia Skills) is part of Student Services. We're here to support and advise students who have:
- Disabilities (physical, communication and sensory)
- Long-term health conditions
- Mental health conditions
- Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs), such as dyslexia, dyspraxia or ADHD.
We can help you check your eligibility and advise on how to claim Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA)
If you declare a disability on your UCAS form, we'll contact you before you arrive to discuss your support needs and adjustments. This helps us get support in place for when you arrive at university. We'll also contact your university department to tell them about any reasonable adjustments you need. If you don’t find out you have a disability, health condition or SpLDs until later on your course, please contact us so we can support and advise you.
We send all prospective students a link to our free online screening tool, the Do-IT Profiler. This helps you assess your own study skills and contains useful advice and resources. It can also help you decide whether to have a dyslexia (or other SpLD) assessment. We recommend you do this before starting your course but please get in touch if you decide to do it later.
