Students with a disability

If you need support for mental health, physical, sight or hearing impairment, dyslexia or autism - on this page you'll find the ways we are here for you.

Support that suits you

If you have are someone with special needs, we will invite you for a Soft Landing interview before the start of your studies. During the interview, a student counsellor will talk through the arrangements, facilities and guidance you may need. The interview is confidential and will not affect your admission or any selection. If you'd like information before the interview, please contact our student counsellor.
