Disability - Tell Us About Your Needs

If you think you would like to engage with our team for disability related support, please complete our 'Tell Us About Your Needs' questionnaire, which will allow one of our advisers to start the process of identifying the most appropriate support requirements and allow us to engage with you.

The questionnaire is intended to help us to start thinking about your support needs. We need you to think about how your impairment or condition may affect your learning and study at university. 

You can complete and submit the questionnaire online at: “Tell us about Your Needs” questionnaire (online) (secure and accessible online form)

Or you can download the questionnaire at:  tell us about your needs (MS Word accessible form) and submit it to us at the contact address above.

Please be aware that you on submission of your questionnaire, you will receive a confirmation email and thereafter, your questionnaire will be reviewed by one of our disability advisers, and therefore it may take up to 2 weeks before you would receive a response.
