Disability Learning Support

Our Disability Learning Support (DLS) Team offer help and support to students with disabilities. Please watch our short video to see what we mean by disability and how we can support you. See our support page for more information.

Get in touch

If you have a disability or think you may do, please get in touch as soon as you can. Together we’ll see what support you may need to ensure you have all the tools to succeed on your course.

To find out more about the type of support available, please see our ‘Reasonable Adjustment Questionnaires’ on the Support page.

If you have any questions, please:

  • Call us on (020) 3506 8800 (we’re open from 9.30am until 4.30pm)
  • Email us at [email protected]

Confidentiality

We appreciate the information you may share with us is personal and we respect your right to privacy. You don’t need to share what your disability is outside of our team in order to receive support (unless there is a health and safety requirement e.g. if you have epileptic seizures).

Please note: the information you give us will never be shared with other students. It will also not be on your university transcript or academic references. 

For more details, please read our Disability Learning Support Consent and Disclosure statement (PDF).
