Current Students

Students can disclose a disability or long term condition at any time during their studies at Queens by contacting Disability Services:

Following initial contact, you will be invited to attend a registration meeting with a member of Disability Services staff.  You will need to bring evidence of your disability or long term condition to this meeting. See Guidelines for Medical Evidence for further guidance.

The purpose of the registration meeting is to determine the support you need to participate in University life.

Supports Available

Support is provided to students with a wide range of needs, including:

  • Physical and mobility difficulties
  • Visual impairment
  • Hearing impairment
  • Medical conditions
  • Specific learning difficulties e.g. dyslexia
  • Mental health 

Support available varies and will be tailored to meet individual requirements, but may include the following:

  • Liaising with staff, tutors, library services and the exams office to ensure that they are aware of your requirements
