Medical Conditions

On application to the University

If you have a medical condition for which you may require support while studying please contact Student Wellbeing prior to commencing your course.

Medical conditions are often unseen and may include epilepsy, diabetes, severe asthma, arthritis, cystic fybrosis, cancer, HIV, chronic fatigue syndrome or irritable bowel syndrome. The wide range of medical conditions attracts different support requirements or adjustments to varying degrees.

You may still be considered disabled even if your illness or medical condition isn't affecting your life much at the moment, but is likely to do so in the future. An example of this would be if you had recently been diagnosed with a degenerative condition, such as multiple sclerosis or you have a relapsing/remitting condition such as arthritis.
