Applicants who have indicated a disability should already have received a questionnaire, provided by the Admissions and Access Service, to identify their support needs. If you have not received a questionnaire, please contact the Admissions and Access Service. If you have not already completed the questionnaire, please do so as soon as possible, as this will help us to better meet your support needs.
The University is committed to supporting students with disabilities and has developed a range of support mechanisms to enable students to participate fully in university life. Support is provided to students with a wide range of needs, including physical and mobility difficulties, sensory impairments, medical conditions, specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, Autistic Spectrum Disorders and mental health difficulties. Applicants who have disclosed their disability will be contacted by Disability Services during the summer months to arrange an assessment - in some cases this may be prior to confirmation of their place. In the meantime, further information on the support available can be found at:
Applicants can also contact Disability Services, should they have any queries or wish to discuss their individual needs.
The Student Guidance Centre is your first stop for information, advice and guidance throughout your time at Queen's University.
