How staff can support students

Student Disability Services are available to provide advice and guidance to staff on how to support students with disabilities at the University.

We work closely with staff to implement special conditions for written tests, to support students in labs and on fieldwork, and to review student requests for coursework support.

Staff with disabilities are encouraged to contact our colleagues in HR's Staff Equity team for support.
