Registering for Disability Support
Our aim is to offer all students a fair and enjoyable learning experience, regardless of disability or differences.
We recommend that you let us know as soon as possible if think you have a condition or difficulty (whether formally diagnosed or not) that could impact on your learning so we can get the support you need in place as soon as possible.

Disability Student Allowance
The Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) are UK government support funds for eligible students with physical and mental disabilities, including dyslexia and dyspraxia.
The funding provided by DSAs can help pay for extra essential costs you may incur as a direct result of your disability. These could range from sign language interpreters and dyslexia tutor sessions, to computer equipment and assistive software.
