Support Plans

If you have a diagnosed disability, long-term health condition, mental health condition or a specific learning difference (dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia) you may be able to get a Support Plan. A Support Plan outlines any reasonable adjustments that the university can put in place for the duration of your study. Your tutors will have access to your Support Plan so they can put this in place for you.  

We provide a wide range of support for our students; this will vary, according to your individual need. It might include adjustments to the way you are taught or assessed, such as:

  • Extra time in exams
  • Receiving hand-outs in large print
  • Recording of lectures
  • Alternative assessments
  • Extensions to library loans

We would need to see some evidence e.g. letter from hospital/GP or a medical professional.

At your appointment, the advisor will also discuss with you about applying for extra funding from the Disabled Students Allowance and talk you through how you can apply.

To make an appointment, with one of our advisors to set up support, please fill in our online appointment request form. Once you've submitted your form someone will contact you to make an appointment or discuss with you further. We hope to get back to you as soon as possible but please allow 48 hours for us to get back to you.
