Supporting Disabled Students
Code of Practice
The Disability Resource Centre, in collaboration with Colleges and Departments/Faculties, is committed to promoting best practice throughout the University, and to continually developing the provision of support for disabled students. This provision enables the University to meet its legal obligations to disabled students under the Equality Act (2010). The University’s Code of Practice: Reasonable Adjustments for disabled students sets out the University’s policy in respect of supporting disabled students.

The DRC Monthly Student Digest for June 2014 is now available. The digest contains events, news, job adverts and more, which we think will be of interest to disabled students. The digest is published every month during term time on the DRC website.
