Disability

Disability encompasses a wide range of physical and mental health conditions.

We encourage all potential and current students to notify the School of any condition that may impact on your studies. This may include:

  • Learning difficulties (e.g. Dyslexia or Dyspraxia)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Medical conditions (e.g. Crohns Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Cancer)
  • Physical disabilities (e.g. Multiple Sclerosis)
  • Mental health conditions (e.g. Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Bipolar Disorder)
  • Sensory impairments (e.g. vision or hearing)
  • Mobility difficulties (e.g. use of mobility aids)
  • Brain injury (e.g. strokes or injuries caused by accidents)
  • Temporary injuries (e.g. fractured limb)

Please notify us of any disability as soon as you enrol in your course, or as soon as possible, so that we have sufficient time to discuss the impact of your condition on your studies, and to put the right supports in place to help you manage your condition while studying.  We are here to help you.

Please refer to the School’s Statement on Disabilities for further information
