Information for DSAs needs assessors
Our courses are run by academic schools and research centres, spread across six faculties. Search for undergraduate course information or postgraduate course information. For more detailed information about course requirements, contact the relevant School Disability Coordinator.
We also provide specialist study support for disabled students.
Access to buildings and facilities
Library accessibility and support
Software and assistive software/technology
Once registered, all students can get Office 365 for free.
The Library has assistive software and an assistive technology (AT) room in the Arts and Social Sciences Library. This may benefit students with complex needs.
For further information, contact the Library Support Team.
DSAs £200 equipment contribution
Students contribute the first £200 towards DSAs-funded equipment. If this contribution would put them in financial hardship, signpost them to Disability Services.
Means-tested help may be available. Students whose family income is greater than £42,620 will not receive help.
Lecture capture (Re/Play)
Our central lecture capture platform is called Re/Play.
Re/Play recordings can be captioned for hearing-impaired students.
Re/Play can be ‘authored’. 'Authored' means adding descriptions to images and figures to support visually impaired students.
Please signpost students who may need captioning or authoring to Disability Services.
Re/Play is not available in all teaching venues and is not always used. We recommend that students are equipped with an alternative, DSAs-funded note-taking solution. This could be a digital voice recorder (DVR) or note-taking software to use with a laptop. Our Recording Educational Activity Policy (PDF, 58kB) allows disabled students to record teaching for their own use.
