Our aim is...
...to provide prospective and current students and staff of the University with appropriate information relating to disability issues, and to outline the relevant resources and services available at Queen's.
We currently provide support to students with a wide range of disabilities, including:
- Physical and mobility difficulties
- Visual impairments
- Hearing impairments
- Medical conditions
- Specific learning difficulties e.g. dyslexia
- Mental health difficulties
The nature and type of support available varies and will be tailored to meet your individual requirements, but may include the following:
- Arranging support providers including note-takers, library assistants and proof-readers etc
- Assisting with your application for Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA), which is available to UK residents studying full-time undergraduate courses. It should be noted that some part-time and post-graduate students are also eligible for DSA. Further details can be obtained from Disability Services
- Liaising with school staff to ensure that they are aware of your requirements
Disability Services is also actively involved in the following:
- Providing advice on the development of disability policies and programmes throughout the University
- Promoting awareness of disability issues by disseminating relevant information, and running training programmes for both staff and students
