Disability support & additional needs provision

Our Policy Statement regarding students with a disability is as follows:

“All students with a recognised disability will receive appropriate support during their studies. The objective of this policy is to help ensure that all students with a disability requiring some form of agreed special arrangements shall not be disadvantaged as a consequence of their disability”.

The University's Disability Support Service (DASS) is able to organise a wide range of individual practical support and can assist you to access external resources like the Disabled Students Allowance.

Ideally, the DASS asks students who require support during their studies to disclose their disability by one of the following routes:

  • Completing the appropriate box on your application form
  • Contacting the DASS to arrange a prospective visit
  • Completing the appropriate box on your registration form at the start of your programme
  • Contacting the DASS directly at any point before or during your studies
  • Telling your School - via the AMBS Undergraduate Assessment and Student Support Centre (ASSC).

The DASS is situated on the 2nd Floor of University Place,
