As part of the provision of reasonable adjustment, students may be allowed special arrangements in exams.

Special arrangements can include extra time, alternative rooming or the help of a reader/scribe. It is very important that if you think you qualify for special exam arrangements and you have not already registered, you should contact the Student Wellbeing Service as soon as possible. Applications deadlines for special exam arrangements are strictly adhered to; announcements about deadlines are published to the Student Wellbeing Service page closer to the exams periods.

Please note: the university does not allow automatic extensions for coursework on the ground of disability.
