Additional Support and Disability Advice Centre (ASDAC)

Students who disclose a disability or require additional support for their academic studies are encouraged to contact us.  We are available to meet in confidence, with any student who has a condition which may impact on their ability to access the campus, curriculum, teaching, learning, assessments and other student-focused services.

The team look forward to meeting those students who would like to get the most out of their time at University and to provide advice and guidance through the process.
