Disabilities and Health Conditions
Coventry University London aims to provide a campus that is inclusive and provides disabled students with access to all programmes and activities on offer at the University, as far as reasonably possible.
Disability Advice is offered by the Student Support Team and is available to support students from application to graduation. The Student Support Team has the experience and skills to ensure that individuals receive appropriate support throughout their time at University. We offer support to students with a variety of disabilities including:
- Specific Learning Difficulty (Dyslexia)
- Physical and Sensory Disabilities
- Asperger's (Autistic Spectrum)
Our aim is to ensure that support is in place when you arrive at University. We are therefore happy to provide information and guidance before you complete your application via email.
Confidentiality and Disclosure
You are not under any obligation to disclose your disability to the University. However, it is important to consider the advantages of doing so before making a decision. When you disclose a disability, the University will do all that is deemed reasonable to identify and arrange appropriate support to meet your needs and implement this support as soon as possible.
We will not disclose any personal or sensitive information regarding your disability without your consent, as per the Data Protection Act. To ensure that your support needs are met, there may be specific information that is shared with other members of University Staff. As a result, we request that you sign a Disclosure of Personal Information form.
If you decide not to disclose information about your disability or allow further disclosure to relevant members of staff, it may not be possible for the University to make the adjustments required to support your needs.
Individual Examination Arrangements
If you have a disability, learning difficulty, or other medical condition that could affect your performance in examinations, please make an appointment to see Student Support as soon as possible at the Student Information Desk. If appropriate, Student Support may recommend individual examination arrangements based on the evidence provided. Evidence accepted is a full diagnostic report for SpLD or medical evidence. The diagnostic report/medical evidence must be clear on what adjustments you require and how your disability/medical condition affects you during examinations.
The University cannot guarantee that we can facilitate adjustments that were made at a previous institution.
