Queen’s welcomes and encourages applications from students with disabilities. We will endeavour to make sure that all your individual requirements are met to ensure your time at Queen’s is an enjoyable and positive experience.

Deciding to disclose disability can be a difficult choice for students applying to University. While we accept this to be a personal decision, we strongly recommend that you inform us in order that your individual requirements can be addressed. The best way for you to do this is to be as explicit as possible about the extent of your needs in the appropriate section of your application.

Queen’s has developed a range of services suitable for students with disabilities. For most courses, if you receive an offer, you will be provided with a questionnaire which you should complete and return to Disability Services. However, in some cases, you may be contacted in advance of a decision being made.

The information you provide will be treated as sensitive and kept strictly confidential. It will only be used to plan for your individual support requirements ensuring that your transition to Queen’s is as smooth as possible.

Further details on the range of services available can be obtained from the Disability Services:
