Student Services: Disabilities and Dyslexia

Enrolment, Registration and Induction of Students

There are accessible arrangements and support for disabled students at enrolment, registration and induction. Again it is helpful if students give adequate notice to Admissions so that suitable support can be put in place.

There will be opportunities during induction to meet staff from the Disabilities and Dyslexia Service and to raise or reconsider academic support arrangements.

The induction sessions during Welcome Week will give you an opportunity to find out more about the University, your course, your Department and your Undergraduate or Postgraduate Centre. Your Undergraduate or Postgraduate Centre will advice you on your academic progress throughout the continuation of your course. The Centre will also be the place where your internal need assessment is sent.

During Welcome Week you will be able to meet staff and fellow students in the introductory sessions and you will be able to chat to them at a social event for your department. In addition, sessions have been organised for you to introduce you to the University’s facilities, including Student Services, computing facilities, the library and the Student Union and the The Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT).

Throughout Welcome Week a Student Welcome Team will be on hand to help you find your way around the University.

There are introductory sessions taking place throughout the first month of the autumn semester to enable students who arrive later at the University to find out about their course, Department and Undergraduate or Postgraduate Centre and the University’s facilities.
