Service description:
Talk to course providers about your needs
Here are a few things to check with the disability coordinators and advisers at any course providers you're interested in.

Does the support available meet your individual needs?
How does the course provider currently support other students with a similar impairment?
Can anyone help with applications for Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs)?
Will you need to provide proof of your disability – if so, what is required?
If you find it hard to talk to the course provider, can you nominate someone else on your behalf?

You can get contact details on course provider websites or prospectuses.

Accessing facilities
Check lecture halls, libraries and living accommodation are accessible.

Discuss your needs with them before you apply, and check what support is available.
It's a good idea to visit them too – seeing the facilities for yourself and talking to staff.
That way you can make sure you'll have everything you need when you arrive.

Always visit the Open Days and talk to the course tutors about your needs and possible adaptations to meet your needs.
