Disclosure of your disability

If you have a disability or learning difficulty, please tell the University as soon as you can, so the AccessAbility Centre can tell you about support and services that are available to you.

The best place for you to do this is on your UCAS form or Graduate School application form. However, you can also do it at any time during your studies, either by telling a member of staff in your department or by contacting the AccessAbility Centre. Any information you give will be treated with sensitivity and, in most circumstances, will not be passed on to your department without your knowledge.  You will be asked to sign up to the Centre’s Data Protection statement at your first appointment in the Centre.

You can request that information you disclose about your disability is kept within the AccessAbility Centre and the implications of this will be discussed with you.

You will, of course, be treated exactly the same as any other applicant before you apply to the University, during the application process, and when you are here. Apart from the professional standards of the University, you are protected by the Disability Discrimination Act.

If you would like to discuss the implications of disclosure, please contact us. 

All information will be treated in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act (1998).
