Additional Support and Disability Advice Centre (ASDAC)

Our service is committed to supporting students who disclose a disability or require additional support for their academic studies.  We encourage any student to contact us, in confidence, who has a condition which may impact on their ability to access the campus, curriculum, teaching, learning, assessments and any other student-focused service.
