University College Birmingham has developed a system of diagnostics and referral to enable students with differing needs (disabilities/learning difficulties) to make informed choices about a proposed course.
We will provide you with an honest assessment of how suitable a particular course might be for you including how easily you would be able to cope with University College Birmingham’s buildings and details of specialised facilities (including student residential accommodation) and staff appropriate to your needs. We will also assist in the identification of specialist equipment required to support your learning.
You are encouraged to identify your own particular requirements in your application or by speaking, confidentially, to your interviewer. If we are to offer appropriate support, it is important that we are made aware of your needs at the earliest opportunity. This will help you adjust quickly to life at University College Birmingham.
