The Accessibility team provide help, support and advocacy for students with disabilities and anyone experiencing problems like anxiety or stress. We are the people to see for advice and support for applying for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).
The Accessibility Service is a shared service, working with both Falmouth University students and the University of Exeter students studying at the Penryn campus.
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 software and laptop). 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 via Compass online.
Or you can ring us at the Penryn Campus on 01326 370460 or at the Falmouth Campus on 01326 213735 or email StudentServices@fxplus.ac.uk
We provide a drop in service Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. during term times. The Accessibility Service team is located within Student Services at both Penryn and Falmouth campuses.
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. We welcome applications from disabled students (e.g. physical, sensory, mental health) and those with learning difficulties (e.g. dyslexia). We encourage anyone with a disability or learning difficulty to describe their needs on their online application form. This will not affect your application but will help us to plan your support.
