Support for Disabled Students

The Disability Service provides information, advice and guidance to and co-ordinates support for USW students who have disabilities, including physical, sensory, mental health or unseen disabilities, specific learning difficulties (e.g. dyslexia) and autism.

If you are studying at a USW partner college please contact your college.

We provide a confidential service where you can discuss your individual requirements. We can advise you on what support is available and help you apply for it.

If you have any queries or require any disability related support please contact us or book an appointment with a Disability Adviser to discuss. Please let us know at the time of booking if you require an appointment through the medium of Welsh or English. Please note, it may be necessary to arrange for a simultaneous translator to be present.

All appointments and interactions with the Disability Service should be conducted in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct. Failure to adhere to the Student Code of Conduct may result your appointment being terminated and will be treated as misconduct.
