Disability/Specific Learning Difficulty  (Further InformationOpens in a new window)

If you have a disability, a significant ongoing illness and/or specific learning difficulty you are encouraged to indicate this on your application (although you are not obliged to do so).

Providing information about your disability has two purposes:

  1. To allow HEIs to consider any specific support needs you may have in a higher education institution.
  2. To allow HEIs to consider you for supplementary admissions routes (e.g. DARE) for applicants with disabilities.
    If deemed eligible for the scheme applicants may be entitled to a reduction in points for entry to participating HEIs.

Please note that disclosure of a disability and/or specific learning difficulty will not adversely affect your application in any way.

If you wish to disclose your disability or specific learning difficulty please select 'yes' and click on the 'Update Selection' button below. You will then be asked to complete the Supplementary Information Form.
