Arranging An Appointment
The Disability & Learner Support Team offer a range of appointments depending on your requirements.
Reasonable Adjustment Plan Appointment
When you first get in touch with us, we will arrange a one hour appointment for you with a Disability Adviser to discuss reasonable adjustments. Your Reasonable Adjustment Plan will be set up in this appointment, and the Adviser will explain how to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowance, if appropriate. You will need to bring along medical evidence, if you do not currently have medical evidence then please download our Medical Evidence Form. You can take this to a medical professional to fill in to provide you with appropriate evidence. You can book an appointment at askUS in University House or by contacting us directly. If you are unable to come into the University for an appointment (for example if you are a distance learning student), alternative arrangements can be made.
Quick Query Session
Quick Query sessions are 20 minute sessions with a Disability Adviser available during semester 1 and 2. They are bookable a week in advance for quick questions about your Reasonable Adjustment Plan recommendations or Disabled Student Allowance for example. Members of staff can also book into these sessions for any disability related questions.
Please book via My Advantage
In addition to these Quick Query Sessions an adviser will be available in University House, from 11-3pm every day. They will be able to accept paperwork (copies of original evidence), book appointments as well as answer quick queries you have about your support. Please visit askUS in University House to speak to an adviser.
Quick Query Sessions are suspended during the summer (semester 3). However, a Duty Adviser will be available to see students between 10am – 3pm in University House every week day. Please visit askUS in University House to speak to an adviser.
