This article will provide information on how University staff are advised of specific teaching and assessment needs of individual students.
In order to ensure that you are able to access support it may be necessary to communicate information on to your academic department, such as the need to record lectures or extra time in exams.
This information is provided on a 'need to know' basis and only for the purposes of reasonable adjustment. Should you wish certain details of your disability and/or support needs to remain confidential then we will respect your wishes. The details of the information to be shared will be discussed with you and we will ask you to complete a disclosure agreement.
Method of sharing information
Information is primarily communicated through a dynamic link between the Additional Support and Disability Advice Centre's (ASDAC's) own confidential database and the University's student records system. The agreed information is uploaded to the student records system where it can be accessed in the following ways:
At other times, specific requirements may be discussed directly by telephone, e-mail or in person with departments where a specific arrangement or structural adjustment needs to be agreed.
