Disability Support

At Wrexham Glyndwr University we believe that higher education should be available for everyone, and we strive to provide the best possible accessibility for disabled students. Last year 1 in 4 of our students were in receipt of DSA (Disabled Student Allowance) so you can be sure that you’ll reach your potential with the support available here.

Whether you already know that there may be individual needs arising in relation to a disability, medical condition, or specific learning difference, such as dyslexia, or you become aware of needing support when you start your studies with us – we are here to help.  There is a range of services to help you right from the point you choose to disclose a disability or learning difference.

Our DisAbility Team offers appointments if you wish to discuss any issues relating to learning support or disability, informally and in confidence.

We can help arrange for you to:

  • Find out if you are experiencing learning differences, such as dyslexia
  • Access specialist one-to-one tutor support
  • Meet with a mental health mentor
  • Help ensure appropriate exam arrangements are in place
  • Apply for Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) if you are eligible
  • Arrange an appointment at our on-site Assessment Centre

If you are a current student. Please access our Moodle site for information and appointments.

Declaring a disability

You can disclose a disability at any time during your studies and you may be eligible to apply for DSA (Disabled Student Allowance). Anything you tell us is in confidence and we won’t share information without your permission.

If you are experiencing difficulties during your studies and wonder whether the reason could be a disability or learning difference, such as dyslexia, we would encourage you to come and see us and seek advice. We may be able to help you arrange an appointment to meet with an educational psychologist or specialist dyslexia tutor who will be able to tell you if you are experiencing learning differences.
