Every university offers support for disabled students, students with mental health conditions, long-term medical conditions and students with Dyslexia or other Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD).
It is helpful when students disclose on their UCAS application if they have a disability or learning difficulty as it allows support services at university to pro-actively contact applicants and new students about any help available.
Examples of support include help with applications for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA), Reasonable Adjustments to assessment arrangements such as extra time in exams, acquisition of specialist equipment or software, provision of non-medical support workers and specialist study skills support. This is by no means an exhaustive list. But the support available can vary between universities, for example based on their size and course offer.
