Specialist study support for disabled students

We can advise you on how to access a range of specialist study support. This support needs funding, and includes:


This is one-to-one, confidential light-touch coaching. Practical and emotional support to help you achieve your academic goals. Mentoring is not the same as counselling and is not therapy.

Study skills tuition

This is one-to-one, confidential support with academic skills. It will help you understand assignment briefs, organise your thoughts on paper, and prepare for exams. Study skills tuition is not subject-specific.

Practical support

This is manual handling or ‘fetching and carrying’ support. You might use practical support in the library, in a lab or workshop, or on a field trip.

Other support

There is other one-to-one funded specialist support available, such as manual and electronic notetaking, using a reader or scribe in exams, and sign language interpreting. Contact us to discuss your needs.
