Student Support Unit

The Student Support Unit is a team of specialist Disability Advisors and administrators. We provide confidential information and advice to current and future students on disability-related study support and accessing disability-related funding.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Student Support Unit is now delivering support to students via email and audio or video calls. All staff are working remotely – be assured we are still contactable and able to support you.
