If you require support with a physical, learning or mental disability, there is dedicated support in place to help you navigate University life.
When you apply to university through UCAS you can let us know if you may need some extra support with managing your studies or general student life. Someone from our Student Welfare Service will contact you if you choose to study with us to make sure you are aware of all the support you can access and help you with any concerns or worries you might have. If you want to speed up this process or have questions before you apply or make your decision to study with us you can contact the Student Welfare Service (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly and they will be happy to help.
The Student Welfare Service will discuss your specific circumstances with you, how they can help with accommodation, travel or finances depending on what you need. Your named member of staff will check in with you during your studies to make sure things are all going as smoothly as possible.
The Student Welfare Service provide a range of support for students regardless of their circumstances. If you are not sure if you qualify for specific support, you are more than welcome to chat to them to see how they can help you.
Our AccessAbility Centre provides support for any student at the University who needs help because of dyslexia (or any other specific learning difficulty), a disability of any sort or a long term condition. We will help you with whatever special arrangements, adjustments or support you need in order to study, succeed and graduate – and take part in all aspects of student life. You can contact us, in confidence, at any time before or during your course; the more notice you give us about starting here at Leicester, the better prepared we will be to help you once you arrive.
In collaboration with AccessAble, a leading provider of accessibility information for disabled people in the UK, the University has created an online guide for students, staff and visitors. This detailed resource lets you find out about the access to all of the University’s buildings and services.
