Disability Support

The support and assistance provided through the Disability Support Service aims to assist each student to meet the inherent requirements of their course whilst maintaining as much academic independence as possible. The Disability Support Service offers practical assistance and advice to students with a permanent or temporary disability or medical condition. If students are experiencing difficulties with their studies due to the effects of their disability, they can register with the Disability Support Service. Students must provide appropriate documentation and may be eligible for a range of support and assistance.
