The Accessibility Team advise and support students with disabilities, health conditions and specific learning differences. Our aim is for all students to feel equally valued and included.
We are also the people to see for advice and support for applying for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).
Accessibility is a shared service, working with both Falmouth University students and the University of Exeter students.
Our Accessibility Advisers can work with you in a confidential environment to discuss your needs and arrange support for you while you are studying. For example, you may be eligible to apply for a Disabled Student Allowance, which provides a grant to overcome practical barriers to learning (e.g. Support workers, specialist tutors, specialist equipment or software etc). We can also liaise with your course tutors to ensure that information is provided in an accessible format for you.
To arrange an appointment, log an enquiry.
We provide a drop in service as well as designated appointments and we can arrange to meet you at both Penryn and Falmouth Campus sites.
It is best to contact our team before you start your course so that any necessary support can be arranged as soon as possible. This is especially important if you are entering accommodation at the University and may require adaptations to your accommodation.
