If you have a learning difficulty, disability, or a significant health or mental health issue, we encourage you to book a meeting with our education support advisers to discuss your support options ahead of starting your studies.

If you've had support at school or college before and you want this to continue, you'll need to let us know. You may also be exploring support for the first time and have lots of questions about what's on offer.
