We warmly welcome and support students with disabilities and are fully committed to widening access to students by providing additional support. This ensures that all students benefit from their academic studies.
The word 'disability' covers a wide range of circumstances such as people with physical or sensory impairments, dyslexia, medical conditions, mental health and learning difficulties, to name but a few. Whilst we know what we can offer, you are the best to judge what you require to access the curriculum and to participate fully in student life.
Many students may feel unsure about how to manage their course of study in relation to their disability whatever that may be. We offer encouragement to all students and endeavour to provide advice, support, facilities and equipment suitable to all individual needs.
Further information regarding the college's disability policy can be found within our Disability Equality Scheme
