Disability support

Our Study Support Service offers information, advice and specialist support to students with disabilities, including mental health difficulties, ongoing medical conditions and specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia.

We hold drop-in sessions for current students, where you can discuss anything with us in confidence. The sessions take place from 12-1pm each week day in Cambridge and Chelmsford; and 12-1pm on Wednesdays and Fridays in Peterborough. Or you can call or email at any time.

Some of the things we can help with include exam or timetabling adjustments, and access to facilities. You might also find you’re eligible for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA), which can be used for equipment and support to help you to complete your course. Take a look at the DSA website for more information, or contact us if you’d like to talk it over. You can have your study needs assessment at the UNW Access Centre.

For more information about the support you can receive, along with our contact details, visit the Study Support Service web page.
