We recognise that this is a challenging time for everyone and that this may be especially the case for those of you with certain disabilities and ongoing health conditions. In addition, there have been many changes to take on board such as teaching and learning moving to online platforms, which may pose additional issues for some students.
Our main advice is to remember that all Student Support services, including the Disability Inclusion Team, remain open (although staff are working remotely). Please do get in touch with us or book a telephone appointment if you are facing any additional issues with your studies in relation to your health condition or disability.
As this is an evolving situation we will keep you notified of any changes to our services on this webpage and via social media.
