Applicants Information - Disability and Dyslexia Centre

We are happy to provide information and advice prior to your arrival at University.

If you have told us on your application that you have a disability or specific learning difference such as dyslexia, we will send you a questionnaire to ask for further information. If you have not mentioned it on your application, please get in touch with us and we will send you a questionnaire. 

The questionnaire can also be completed online

Once we have received your completed questionnaire, we will contact you to arrange an appointment with your Disability Adviser either in person or by phone. 

To support your arrangements at university we will require evidence of your disability, medical condition or specific learning difference. 

Guidance on how to get the relevant evidence

Evidence from an Educational Psychologist confirming a specific learning difference:
If you have a report from an Educational Psychologist, please send it to us.
If you do not have a diagnosis or have not previously been supported for dyslexia, we can conduct a screening and arrange for you to meet with an Educational Psychologist if required. 

Evidence from a GP or other Healthcare Professional: 
A supporting letter from GP or Health professional can be sufficient as evidence. 
Further guidance on what to state in the letter:

Evidence of support from School, College or past University study:
If you have any information about the support you have had at School or College, please share it with us.  It can assist us to provide tailored support in line with your past studies.

Information you provide will be treated as sensitive personal data. We provide a confidential service to all our students, applicants and enquirers.  Any information that you provide us will be treated in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
