The University of Nottingham and the School of Economics welcome applications from all students. Our aim is to provide a high level of support and guidance - from the moment you first enquire to the moment you graduate.
What we can offer you
Disability Support in Student Services assists in the development of university policy and procedures relating to disability and their compliance with the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001.
There is lots of useful information including the university's Disability Plan for Students, Disability Equality Scheme and Disability Statement available on the Student Services website.
Disability Support Services are here to help you if you have a disability, mental health difficulty, long-term medical condition, autistic spectrum condition, or a specific learning difference such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia or ADHD.
The team offers a range of academic and practical support for all students and can also provide information about Disabled Students' Allowances (DSA's) and, as a registered National Network of Assessment Centre (NNAC), the assessments required by Local Education Authorities (LEAs).
The School of Economics has a dedicated Disability Liaison Officer, Dr Elke Renner, who can be contacted via email.
What you need to do
So that we can help you make the most of your studies, please tell us about your disability. You should contact Disability Support Services if you have a disability, mental health difficulty, long-term medical condition, autistic spectrum condition, or a specific learning difference such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia or ADHD.
You can also contact us before you begin your studies and when you have received an offer from the University of Nottingham. Please be aware that if your information is provided later in the academic year then there may be a delay in the university meeting some of your support needs.
Students are also urged to inform their personal tutor and/or the school's Disability Liaison Officer of any disability, specific learning difficulty (such as dyslexia) and/or long-term medical condition.
The school ensures that personal information remains confidential, but any information regarding necessary support is shared on a need-to-know basis.
