Academic Support and Disability Support offer access to Support Workers for disabled students, including those with dyslexia and dyspraxia. This Practical Academic Support Work has been designed to support the University's compliance with disability legislation. The service is informed by our desire to explore the social model of disability, which means that we actively seek to create a learning context at Nottingham that is responsive to disabled students as a matter of course. We try to reduce the disabling effect of institutional practices and conventions.
The Support Worker Service covers note taking in lectures, seminars and tutorials, reading, library browsing, mentoring, scribing, transcription and can also include supporting students in other practical academic-related ways, such as in lab sessions. It does not include personal care.
This service is usually funded for UK students by Disabled Students' Allowances. A limited amount of funding is available for international students. For more information about funding available for disabled students, please visit the Funding pages.
