Study support

The support and equipment you will receive at the University is normally decided through your Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs) Study Needs Assessment. Depending on your support needs the following may be applicable to you:

  • non-medical Helper support could include support workers etc
  • provision of assistive technology (equipment and software)
  • exam adjustments such as extra time, written instruction, prompt etc.

You should also look at the range of university study skills support as well as Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) sessions.

Reasonable adjustments

We are committed to making reasonable adjustment to help reduce the effect of an impairment or medical condition that places you at a substantial disadvantage in your learning, teaching or assessment situation. For example, adjustments to assessments such as extra time, use of a computer or alternative assessment.

Other help

If you require additional support, please contact Disability Service who can help you with services such as:

  • assistance moving away from home
  • accessing additional support/arrangements for field trips and placements.

If you are already accessing support from an external provider, UWE Bristol, where possible, can work with you to integrate this support. If you wish to transfer support that you currently receive from Social Services, please discuss this with your social services department.
