Who can receive support?
You might not feel that you have a disability, or you dislike the term, but the adjustments and support available may make a real difference in helping you to achieve your goals.
We offer a range of support covering many areas, including:
- Specialist equipment and software
- 1:1 specialist tuition
- Specialist assistive technology training
- Library assistance
In specific cases students are able to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowance. This will give you the extra support you need to be successful in your studies. College staff can help you with your application, for more information please contact the Specialist Support team on 01756 693 860. Disclosing a disability or health condition is not always easy. If you did not disclose on your application form, and would like support, contact the Specialist Support team on 01756 707 274.
