The learning support process

If you have not accessed the University’s Disability Services, this will be your first step to finding out about support.  You will need to make an appointment with a Disability Adviser to discuss your needs. 

In this appointment, an Adviser will discuss any barriers to your learning and may suggest booking an appointment with a Needs Assessor.  A Needs Assessor is a specialist who would take you through an assessment process to recommend the type and level of support you may require.

Find out more information on how to book an appointment by visiting our Disability support pages.
