Disability Support Officers
Our Disability Support Officers work throughout the University and:
- act as the first point of contact for disabled students and applicants in their School/Service, particularly to advise on course and professional requirements and teaching/assessment methods
- liaise with Disability Services to ensure information on disabled students' needs is communicated to all relevant staff with the student's consent, including visiting lecturers and placement providers
- help colleagues to meet the support needs of disabled students in their School/Service, including forwarding information from Disability Services on training opportunities and disability-related resources
Prospective students and external users should contact Disability Services for further information.
Disability Services offers confidential disability support services to all disabled students and staff.
