Disability Support appointments

If you're receiving support from the Disability & Wellbeing Service, contact us to request an appointment. We operate on a waiting list basis and our appointments are often booked in advance. Please provide your availability when requesting an appointment via e-mail.

For students who disclosed a disability at the application stage, we'll contact you before your course starts. We'll invite you to complete our referral questionnaire to allow us to engage with you. One of our advisers will begin identifying the most appropriate support requirements.

If you have not used our services and would like to make a disability referral, complete our request for a disability referral form. We'll then send you our disability referral email. This includes our referral questionnaire and evidence upload link.
