Support for students with disabilities

We’re committed to helping all our students achieve their potential, including those with disabilities of all kinds. If you feel you need additional support because of a disability, contact our team to find out about the help we can offer. It is important to disclose a disability to ensure you are receiving the right support.

Physical access

We’ve worked hard to ensure that our buildings and facilities are accessible to all. There are plenty of disabled parking spaces available, and buildings are fitted with doors with automatic sensors and lifts. Where access proves to be impractical we’ll endeavour to make every effort to find alternative ways of making the curriculum accessible to you.

Students on part-time and full-time higher education courses may be eligible to apply for the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) to help meet the costs of their support needs at college. The DSA will cover the costs of small and large pieces of equipment such as dictaphones, computers and ergonomic seating. It will also cover the costs of non-medical personal help such as scribes, note takers and interpreters. Travel costs may also be claimed in certain circumstances.
