Medical evidence is required for students who are disabled or who have a long term medical condition in order to provide reasonable adjustments and to access services and support at the University of Nottingham.
In accordance with the University's Procedure and Guidance for dealing with Extenuating Circumstances for Students on Taught Courses and Examination Arrangements for Students who have a Disability or Long-Term Medical Condition (Quality Manual), you will need to provide evidence from a qualified medical professional (GP, consultant or specialist nurse), which identifies:
You will need to have a report, in English. From September 2018 intake, we will accept both pre- and post-16 evidence. We will only accept an Educational Psychologist or Specialist Teacher report or equivalent e.g. Occupational Therapist report, ECH Plan or a report from an appropriately qualified medical practitioner. The University will not accept an access arrangement form (Form 8) or a Disabled Students' Allowances Needs Assessment Report as suitable evidence.
The University can provide information and advice about this process if required.
The confidential nature of information provided by students will be respected by the University of Nottingham in accordance with data protection regulations. Confidential information will only be shared within the University on a need to know basis. Any student wishing to restrict the sharing of such information should make his or her wishes known to the appropriate members of staff, preferably in writing.
For further information about disclosure and confidentiality, please refer to the Student Disclosure and Confidentiality Policy.
Students should be aware that non-disclosure of relevant information may lead to a reduction in the services that can be provided. Normally such wishes will be respected, unless to do so would be against the best interests of the University community, or the interests of safety or security of any person.
If, following a request by a student, relevant information is withheld from an individual or University body (e.g. the School's Board of Examiners) it will not normally be admissible during any later appeal against the original decision of that body.
If you have any queries regarding the above policy, please talk to a member of staff in Disability Support.
