What to expect from your first appointment
Your Disability Adviser will discuss with you the impact of your disability on your studies and how you will cope in the university environment. Your first appointment could take up to two hours to complete, so please ensure you allow yourself enough time.
The Disabililty Adviser will assess what services or adjustments will assist you to complete your studies. You will usually see the same Disability Adviser while you are registered with Disability Services. Feel free to ask your Disability Adviser any questions about the services available to you.
At the end of the interview, you will be provided a summary of the services that have been agreed to be put in place. You will be asked to sign the summary and given a copy for your records.
You may also be given a Letter of Support that you must give to your course coordinator and/or lecturers and tutors to ensure your adjustments are put in place.
