Support for disabled students
Accessible facilities on campus
The University has many accessible facilities available across campus for disabled students including adapted accommodation, medical support, and The Edge.
Assessing your needs
An integral part of applying for disability support funding, such as Disabled Students' Allowances, is having your needs assessed at a registered assessment centre.
Assessment access arrangements
If you're disabled, or if you become ill at the time of your assessments, then special arrangements may be made for you.
Degree Apprentice courses combine full-time employment with studying for a foundation, undergraduate or a masters degree. Disability Services provides support for disabled Degree Apprentices for the university-based study elements of their course.
Disability Advisory Team
Disability Coordinators provides support, advice, and guidance to students regarding all aspects of disability in relation to learning and teaching.
Disability support equipment and services
If youre a disabled student, you could benefit from access to a range of equipment and support services.
Disabled international students
The University welcomes and supports disabled international students. Our Disability team can support you to make the most of your time in Leeds.
Disabled postgraduate researchers
Being a disabled postgraduate researcher is different from being a disabled undergraduate and we understand that it could raise some complex issues.
Mental health support
Disability Services provides support for a range of mental health conditions. We work with your academic department to address any barriers to learning created by a mental health condition and ensure that you are able to access all aspects of your studies.
Recordings of teaching sessions
The University’s position on students making their own personal recordings of taught sessions is that personal recordings are only permitted in exceptional circumstances, such as where a student has a disability which impacts on their ability to take their own handwritten notes.
Support worker team
The Support Worker Team coordinates Non-Medical Helper support for disabled students provided by the University of Leeds.
