We would encourage all students who have a disability to register with their university support service to make sure that the correct support and guidance is in place.
It's important to know what extra funding you may be entitled to via Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) and how the rules on this work.
Your university will also have their own support teams if you have any queries or concerns. It is important to disclose to the university any disability or medical condition you may have so that they can offer any appropriate support plans to help you study. University of Greenwich students can view their support here and University of Kent students here.
Inclusive Learning Plans
These specify reasonable adjustments for your programme of study, including assessments and exams. You are normally asked to provide medical evidence and should contact your university Disability Support Team as soon as possible if you think you might need adapted arrangements for exams.
So if you are a student with a diagnosis of a disability, mental health condition, specific learning difficulty and/or long-term medical condition then you should speak to the Disability Support Team to discuss your needs.
We recommend this is completed as soon as possible so that you know you’re going to get the support you need for your studies.
