Student Information

Important Notice

For students who are registered with Disability Services and already have an ISSA in place, your in-course supports will remain unchanged and will be reinstated for the new academic year. However, you need to let us know if you have changed course or pathway to ensure that your new School will receive a copy of your ISSA.

If there has been a significant change in your condition(s) or you have been diagnosed with a new condition, please contact Disability Services at disability.office@qub.ac.uk to arrange a reassessment.

If you were previously registered with Disability Services as an undergraduate and are returning to complete a postgraduate course, you must re-register with the service by completing an online Pre-Registration Questionnaire. You will then be offered a reassessment appointment.

We are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all.

We want to ensure that students with a disability or long-term condition have equitable access as far as reasonably possible to all aspects of University life. We are committed to creating an environment where students feel comfortable in disclosing their disability or long-term condition.

In outlining this commitment, the University will take all reasonable steps to ensure that all students can benefit from the full range of academic, cultural and social activities that the University offers. 

Please read our Student Support Agreement, as this explains how we will treat the information you share with us while receiving support.

How to Register: Roadmap

Pre-Registration Questionnaire

Even if you have told us you have a disability or long-term condition, you’ll need to complete our short questionnaire

Please note: Students who are returning to study a postgraduate course and who were previously registered with Queen’s University Disability Services need to re-register as support does not automatically roll over to a new course. 

Please contact us at disability.office@qub.ac.uk prior to completing a new questionnaire to begin the registration process.

You will be asked some short questions about your condition(s), so that we can start preparing the most appropriate support for you.

Supporting Documentation Guidance

When you’re completing your Pre-Registration Questionnaire, you will be asked to upload evidence.

To register with Disability Services you must complete an online Disability pre-registration questionnaire and provide us with supporting documentation of your disability, medical condition, mental health difficulty or Specific Learning Difficulty. You will then be offered an appointment with a member of the team.  If you are unsure if you have sufficient supporting documentation or have a working diagnosis, we encourage you to get in touch with us to discuss this. Our team is here to discuss possible support options tailored to your individual needs.

If you have already completed the pre-registration questionnaire, but have additional medical evidence, please upload it via the Additional supporting documentation link.

You will be asked some short questions about your condition(s), so that we can start preparing the most appropriate support for you.

Prospective Students Information

THINKING OF APPLYING TO QUEEN’S?

Deciding to disclose a disability or long-term condition is a personal decision and we strongly recommend that students inform us at application stage.  Disclosure will not have any bearing on whether a student is offered a place at the University and all information regarding your condition will be treated in strict confidence.

Details of the application procedures are given on the Admissions and Access Service webpage and we would also advise you to consult the University's Undergraduate or Postgraduate prospectus for specific information.

If you are applying for an undergraduate degree, the easiest way to disclose is to tick the disability box when completing your UCAS form.

Postgraduate students can disclose their disability on their University application.

If you’d rather not do this, you can contact us directly.
