Disability support

We are committed to providing a friendly and accessible service for disabled students so that they may study effectively and make full use of the opportunities at Newcastle University London.

Advice, information and guidance is available to disabled applicants and students at all stages of their university career. In addition, we liaise with academic schools over students' support requirements and external agencies where appropriate.

Whilst Student Services and the campus will work to support you throughout your time at Newcastle, you will need to participate in the support that is offered to you to make it work. In particular, if you feel that your support requirements change at any time, then it is important that you let us know so that they can be reviewed to meet your needs.

We also provide advice and resources for staff working with disabled students.

What can we do to help?

If you have a disability, medical condition, specialist learning needs, or an ongoing mental health diagnosis, you may be entitled to additional support, including: 

  • Specialist tuition
  • Extra time in exams
  • Specialist equipment
  • General study skills tutoring (essay writing, academic writing skills)

Please contact the Student Services Welcome Desk on the 4th floor and request an appointment if you would like any further information about disability support, including if you would like assistance in setting up a post-16 specialist learning needs assessment.
