Dual Assessment Process Explained

Dual Assessment Process Explained

Within Disability Services, most students will go through two assessments to identify/agree what reasonable adjustments would be suitable to effectively support them with their studies.

  • The assessment with your Disability Officer is essential to register with the Service and receive non-funded supports such as extra time in exams, flexibility with deadlines etc.
  • The second assessment relates to those students who have applied for funded supports through the DSA (Disabled Students’ Allowance) award or similar.
