Information for students with disabilities

Disability Services, part of Academic Services at the University of Nottingham
We have more than 1,250 students at the University with disabilities and our aim is to provide a high level of support and guidance.

What you need to do

It is your responsibility to ensure that the University is aware of your individual requirements. If you have a disability, specific learning difficulty (such as dyslexia), and/or long-term medical condition you are urged to inform your personal tutor and make an appointment with the Academic or Disability Support. We ensure that your personal information remains confidential.  However, any information regarding necessary support is shared on a need-to-know basis.

What we can offer you

Disability Support in Student Services assists in the development of University policy and procedures relating to disability and our compliance with the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001. The University’s Disability Plan for Students, Disability Equality Scheme, Disability Statement, and [dis]Ability Directory, which lists all the provision available at the University, can be accessed from the Disability Support website.

Academic support

Academic Support includes the Disability Support and Dyslexia Support teams, and offers a range of academic and practical support for all students. Academic Support can provide information about Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs) and, as a registered National Network of Assessment Centre (NNAC), the assessments required by Local Education Authorities (LEAs).
