University of Brighton Disability

University of Brighton Disability, The sooner you disclose a medical condition, physical disability, mental health condition or Specific Learning Disability (e.g. dyslexia), the earlier we will be able to arrange support for you.

However, there is no time limit on when you have to disclose. You can do this at any stage during your studies at university.

Please speak to a learning support co-ordinator from the Disability and Dyslexia team if you feel that your studies are being affected.

  • ADD or ADHD (attention deficit (hyperactivity) disorder)
  • a long-term mental health condition including but not limited to depression, anxiety, bipolar, OCD, PTSD, schizophrenia, psychosis and eating disorders
  • substance misuse issues such as drug or alcohol problems or dependency
  • a long-term illness including but not limited to diabetes, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, cancer, HIV, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome or multiple sclerosis
  • an Autistic Spectrum Condition including Asperger’s Syndrome
  • a physical or mobility difference

  • a hearing condition
  • multiple disabilities, or any condition that lasts for 12 months or more and has an adverse effect on your studies
