Resource guides

If you have a disability, there is a lot of support available to you while you are at University. Often, students don't feel that they have what would be termed a disability, but this is just a general term that is used to cover a range of conditions that may affect someone, including physical disabilities, visual or hearing impairments, specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and AD(H)D, mental health difficulties, autism spectrum conditions, and long-term medical conditions.

Funding and Benefits

Students with a disability may be able to claim additional funding from Student Finance England, NHS Bursaries (if applicable), and/or through state benefits if they meet the eligibility criteria.

Support Available

If you have a condition which you think may affect your ability to fully engage with University life, it is recommended that you seek advice as early as possible.
