What sort of support is available for disabled students?

The support depends on you, your condition and your course, but here are a few examples:

  • Learning contracts - documents that set out the reasonable adjustments that the university can make for you, for example extensions, or extra time in exams
  • Support workers - a range of support workers might help you with organisation, study skills or accessing the campus
  • Equipment and software - digital recorders to record lectures, mind-mapping software to plan work.

How to register for support

Follow the instructions to register.  You can upload documents if you have them, if not just skip this and submit your registration.  Keep an eye on your SHU email for advice about what to do next.
