If you have a disability we encourage you to get in touch during your application process so we can discuss what support we can offer you.
These grants help to pay the essential extra costs you may have as a direct result of your disability including a mental-health condition, or specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia or dyspraxia.
Our Study Support Service offers information, advice and support to students with disabilities, including mental health difficulties, on-going medical conditions and specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia.
We hold drop-in sessions for current students, where you can discuss anything with us in confidence. Our Student Welfare Officer is happy to have a face-to-face meeting or you can call 0207 400 6790 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org any time.
We may be able to assist you with special arrangements for your lectures and for your examinations. You may also find you're eligible for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA), which can be used for equipment and support to help you to complete your course. Take a look at the DSA website for more information, or contact us if you'd like to talk it over. If a student requires any special equipment a contribution of up to £200 is required from the student.
A student can get up to £1,954 of General Allowance to help cover day-to-day costs of studying.
