Many people with a mental health condition do not regard themselves as disabled, however the term “disability” can encompass mental health difficulties.
A mental health condition can impact on your ability to study, so telling us about a disability enables us to fully support you during your studies. It is helpful to disclose a disability on your application form, but you can disclose at any time.
