Find out more about the range of support available and what examination access arrangements we offer.
If you don't have any existing evidence of your disability and need to see your GP to get this - you can ask them to complete this medical evidence form.
The disabilities we support
Our support for your condition webpages provide more information about the conditions that we support. These are all conditions defined under the Equality Act 2010, and include:
- Social or communication impairments, such as an Autistic Spectrum Condition
- A visual or sensory impairment uncorrected by glasses
- A longstanding or chronic condition (such as cancer, HIV, diabetes, chronic heart disease or epilepsy)
- A Mental Health Condition (such as depression, Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder)
- A Specific Learning Difficulty (such as dyslexia, dypraxia or ADHD)
- A physical impairment or mobility issue.
We can also help if you want to be assessed for a Specific Learning Difficulty such as dyslexia.
Providing evidence of your disability
When you register with the service, we'll ask for evidence about your disability. This helps us to provide you with the right kind of support, and avoid providing support that's not appropriate.
We'll also provide you with a support pack, which you'll need to complete and return to us. Depending on your condition and needs, some sections might need to be completed by a medical practitioner and evidence provided, or you might need to include a post 16 diagnostic assessment from an educational psychologist or suitably qualified specialist teacher.
To enable us to put in place any relevant support and to communicate your support needs to other, we ask that you complete this consent form and email it to us or bring it along to the Disability Office in Founder's West 143.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the form or guidance.
