Disability Advice is a friendly, confidential team who offer advice and guidance on any disability-related matters within our University. We encourage all applicants and current students to contact them to discuss support and facilities available.
Leeds Beckett University works hard to ensure that, as far as possible, it is accessible to a wide a range of students. We continually anticipate the general requirements of disabled people who experience a broad range of impairments and health conditions and build these into our policies and procedures. Nevertheless we recognise that some students will require individual adjustments made to enable them to access our assessment, learning and teaching provision.
The University has a Disability, Dyslexia and Assessment Centre team where students can disclose their disability/impairment in confidence and discuss their reasonable adjustments with experienced Advisers who will then coordinate the arrangements for the adjustments to be made and provide advice and guidance to both students and academic colleagues on the requirements.
You can make contact by telephone or online.
