Disability Support

The College is small and friendly which means that staff have a close relationship with students and can respond to their needs quickly and flexibly.

We welcome and encourage applications from disabled students, students with long term health conditions and students with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia or dyspraxia.

Around a quarter of our undergraduate students declare a disability and we can offer support with the following: 

  • Specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia
  • Physical or mobility impairments
  • Social communication impairments such as Asperger’s syndrome
  • An unseen longstanding condition such as epilepsy or asthma
  • Deaf or a hearing impairment
  • Blind or Visual impairment
  • Mental health condition such as anxiety or depression.
  • A disability, medical condition or impairment that is not listed above.

We would strongly advise you to contact us before your apply if you feel that you will need some additional support at the interview stage or when you come to the college.  Please see our video above for the experiences of some of our current disabled students at the college.
