Welcome to Disability Assist

About us

Disability Assist is part of Learning Support and Wellbeing and is here to help with your study support requirements if you have a disability. 

If you're a prospective or current student, or a member of staff supporting students, we are here to assist!

What is a disability?

Disability can mean different things to different people. It may include you if you have study support requirements related to a disability, for example:

  • dyslexia 
  • specific learning disabilities
  • mental health difficulties
  • autism 
  • a long term health condition.

If you're a prospective or current student, or a member of staff supporting students, we're here to help. Please contact us if you need assistance with your studies for any of the reasons above.

Weekly revision and exam preparation workshops 

  • Day and time: Wednesdays 5-6.30pm
  • Location: The Learning Gateway, room 11, Roland Levinsky Building
  • Dates: 4 May, 11 May, 18 May and 25 May

Improve your revision and exam preparation skills within a relaxed, supportive and flexible environment. You are welcome to attend one or more of the sessions. The workshop is open to all students. 

The workshop will support you in learning a more structured, whole-brain and multi-sensory approach to tackling revision and preparing for exams. You will also learn to prepare for different types of exams, optimise the exam time available, decode exam questions, practice timed answers and learn examination strategies. 

Additional weekly revision and exam surgeries

You also have the option to drop in to the weekly revision and exam surgeries to either go over some of the workshop techniques or to ask more specific questions. You can come by yourself or with a group of friends.
