Accessibility Service

 

We aim to provide all students with an experience of the highest quality, and to make our academic facilities available to all who meet our entrance requirements.

For disabled students, those with long standing physical/mental health conditions or a specific learning difference, we aim for an inclusive curriculum accessible to all, adapted accommodation, and access to learning areas which are equipped with computers, special hardware, additional software and laptop access. We can offer you advice on individual examination arrangements and enabling technology so that you can reach your full potential and get the good results you deserve.

If you would like further information about our provision for students with disabilities or have specific questions, please contact us by email on disability@aber.ac.uk or phone us on (01970) 621761 or 622087.
