Help us to support you
We need to know about your circumstances or situation as soon as possible to provide advice, guidance and support before and during your studies.
You can formally disclose an impairment, health condition or disability as soon as you make an application to study at the University of Plymouth.
If you need any support before you make an application (for example, access requirements at an open day), please speak to our Admissions team.
