Leeds Metropolitan University works hard to ensure that, as far as possible, it is accessible to a wide a range of students. We continually anticipate the general requirements of disabled people with a wide range of impairments and health conditions and build these into our practices and procedures. Nevertheless we recognise that some students will require individual adjustments made to enable them to access our assessment, learning and teaching provision. The University has a Disability, Dyslexia and Assessment Centre team where students can discuss the implications on their studies of their disability/impairment in confidence and discuss their reasonable adjustments with experienced Advisers who will then coordinate the arrangements for the adjustments to be made and provide advice and guidance to both students and academic colleagues on the requirements.
Advice and support
The Disability, Dyslexia and Assessment Centre team is the first point of contact for you to discuss your requirement for reasonable adjustments. We are able to offer a wide range of advice and support to all students whatever your impairment. We can liaise with academic staff, help draw up alternative assessment arrangements, conduct needs assessments for Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) purposes, guide you towards specialist study and tutorial support and put you in touch with a number of disability organisations in Leeds and surrounding areas.
We are available at any time throughout your course of study here at Leeds Metropolitan but we do need you to contact us as soon as possible so that we can offer you the full range of support available. Disability, Dyslexia and Assessment Centre is the first contact for you to get extra help and support if you have (or think you may have) a disability which will affect your ability to study or physically access our University.
