The Accessibility Team advise and support students with disabilities, health conditions and specific learning differences.
Our aim is for all students to feel valued and included and to have the right support in place to facilitate life at the University.
We are the people to contact for advice when applying for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA). This could provide you with funding to overcome practical barriers to learning. Examples could include: Support Workers, Study Skills Tutors, specialist equipment or software. Our Accessibility Advisers can work with you in a confidential environment to discuss your needs.
We provide a drop in service (no appointment necessary) as well as designated appointments and we can arrange to meet you at Penryn and Falmouth Campus sites and at The Knowledge Spa in Truro.
To arrange an appointment, log an enquiry.
It is best to contact the Accessibility 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 University accommodation which may require adaptations to support your needs.
Accessibility is a shared service, working with both Falmouth University students and the University of Exeter students.
