Disability Contacts in Schools

The University has a network of Disability Contacts within academic schools, faculties, and services. 

Disability Contacts 

The Disability Contact is responsible for working with Disability Services and relevant staff members in schools, faculties, and services. This ensures that reasonable adjustments are put in place to navigate barriers to learning.
