Disability Services

Disability Services offers assistance to students with disabilities. Students accessing Disability Services may have physical or sensory impairments, learning disabilities, physical or mental health conditions, injuries, or they may be members of the deaf community.

If you have a disability or health condition, and require assistance or alternative arrangements with study or exams, make an appointment to register with Disability Services. Bring any written evidence verifying your disability to this appointment.

It is important to be aware that if you indicated on your enrolment form that you have a disability or health condition, your tutors are not automatically informed of this. If you wish them to be made aware of your situation, you will need to let them know, or ask us to help you with this.
