Types of Disabilities / SEN

While we acknowledge that “Disability” and “Special Educational Needs (SEN)” are not identical terminologies, we use these terms interchangeably to expand our service provision to students who have a significant impairment or difficulty in learning and university adjustment.

We are committed to supporting students with SEN in overcoming barriers and achieving a successful university education.

A set of educational leaflets and posters talk about various special needs and gives you some tips on supporting students with SEN.

Undiagnosed Disability

If you suspect that your difficulties are related to an undiagnosed disability, we encourage you to contact us and speak to us about your concerns. We will provide a screening service and/or connect you to other assessment services if needed.
