The Equity & Disability Service (EDS) assists students with disabilities by providing appropriate, disability-related study support services and specialist resources such as:
- Practical support (e.g. interpreters, notetakers)
- Assistive technology (e.g. screen reading, screen magnification, learning support and voice recognition software, Sennheiser hearing devices, Otter note-taking and live-captioning technology, CCTV, digital voice recorders)
- Information in alternate and accessible formats (e.g. electronic, enlarged, tactile diagrams, braille, audio transcripts, video subtitles)
- Special arrangements for exams (e.g. extra time, separate room, readers and/or writers)
Any student with a temporary or permanent disability that affects their ability to study is eligible to register.
Assistance for departmental tests, exams and notetaking is available to current registered students.
The Equity & Disability Service offers a range of support services to registered students.
