Disability and Wellbeing

The University of Suffolk values diversity in our community and recognises individual academic identities, which includes specific learning needs. We positively welcome applications from people with disabilities.

We are committed to an ethos of development that aims to fully achieve equality of opportunity and access. The University recognises the importance of anticipatory and individualised support mechanisms in enabling all students to achieve their potential and as such will continue to improve and expand provision for students with a disability.

We aim to answer some of the questions you may have about the University of Suffolk and support that is available, whether you are considering it as a place to study, you are an applicant, or you are a current student.

The University of Suffolk and Partners are located as follows: 

University of Suffolk, Ipswich
University of Suffolk, Suffolk New College
University of Suffolk, West Suffolk College
University of Suffolk, East Coast College
London School of Commerce (LSC)
Global Banking School (GBS)
LD Training 

All campuses conform to the standards outlined in our Disability Statement.

Coordinators of individual reasonable adjustments and support arrangements are often known as disability advisers or hold a similar title. There is an adviser based at each campus.

To contact or make an appointment with the relevant staff member, please refer to the contact details for the disability adviser at your place of study.
