Depending on your specific needs, support available may include some of the following:
- UK students are encouraged to apply for the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) to provide funding for specialist support and equipment. Student Support can advise and help you with your DSA application; click here for the government's guidance and application process.
Inclusive Learning Plans (ILPs) & Adapted Exam Arrangements
- Inclusive Learning Plans (ILPs) are created by Student Support and Wellbeing Advisers. ILPs specify reasonable adjustments which will enable students to have appropriate arrangements for their programme of study, assessments and exams. For more information on how the process works check out this ILP flow chart (PDF) document.
- Students requiring adapted arrangements for exams must be registered with student Support and Wellbeing and provide some form of medical evidence e.g. Educational Psychologist's Report or medical letter. If you believe you might need adapted arrangements for exams please contact Student Support and Wellbeing as soon as possible. This must be done before Week 22 of the academic year as after this it will be too late to make arrangements with the Exams and Timetabling Office.
- If you have had adapted arrangements for past exams and the information on your Inclusive Learning Plan (ILP) is correct you do not need to take any further action.
- If your arrangements need to be renewed or revised, please contact Student Support and Wellbeing to make an appointment with your adviser.
- We aim to offer all full time undergraduate and postgraduate students with disabilities and/or complex personal care needs appropriate accommodation.
- Please contact Student Support at the earliest opportunity to arrange a visit to campus so together we can identify and accommodate your learning and living needs, including necessary reasonable adaptations prior to your arrival and any outside agency support.
