Service description:
The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) connects people to universities, post-university studies, teacher training, apprenticeships, and internships.

Advice for Students with Disabilities

UCAS advise that students with disabilities should talk to course providers about their needs. Find out:

• Does the support available meet your individual needs?
• How does the course provider currently support other students with a similar impairment?
• Can anyone help with applications for Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs)?
• Will you need to provide proof of your disability – if so, what is required?
• If you find it hard to talk to the course provider, can you nominate someone else on your behalf?
