Advice for Students with Disabilities

UCAS advise that students with disabilities should talk to course providers about their needs. Find out:

  • Does the support available meet your individual needs?
  • How does the course provider currently support other students with a similar impairment?
  • Can anyone help with applications for Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs)?
  • Will you need to provide proof of your disability; if so, what is required?
  • If you find it hard to talk to the course provider, can you nominate someone else on your behalf?

Please note: You can contact UCAS by text relay by prefixing the appropriate number with 18001.
