The Disability Support Team (DST) provide information, support and guidance to students with disabilities, mental health difficulties, Specific Learning Difficulties (such as dyslexia) and long term medical conditions. Our area of expertise is learning support; if you feel that your condition or impairment is having an impact upon your studies, you can contact us:
Many students contact a Disability Support Adviser before they actually arrive at University. This is useful because it allows plenty of time to discuss and assess needs and plan support.
If you haven't done this it's a good idea to come and see us soon after you arrive at University - get in touch and ask for an appointment to see a Disability Support Adviser.
You can contact us by telephone, email or letter, or by coming to Student Support at Edinburgh Building, Level 1, City Campus. If you use The Gateway lift, press E1 to get to our floor.
We offer a drop-in every Tuesday at Student Support Services, Edinburgh Building and Thursday at St Peters Campus, Student Support Suite 2pm-4pm (during term time)where you can get further information and register with our service.
For those who feel they may have a Specific Learning Difficulty, we can provide advice on how to get a diagnostic assessment.
