Disability and Learning Support

We value diversity and we are committed to providing equality of opportunity at Schumacher College. We aim to provide student support services which embrace difference and support all students along their learning journey.

Additional needs

Some people may have additional needs or a disabilty that requires extra support in order to allow them to fully take part in the learning community, for example:

  • dyslexia 
  • specific learning difficulties
  • mental health difficulties
  • a long term health condition
  • hearing or visual impairment

If you're a prospective or current student and you have a disability or learning support need, we're here to help.

What do I do next?

Please download and complete a Disclosure Form and send it to the College as soon as possible.

The purpose of your disclosure is to enable us to understand your disability or learning needs and see how we may be able to meet them if you are offered a place on the course.

The earlier this conversation occurs the better; this allows both you and the College to reflect on what reasonable adjustments are possible and if there are any support requirements you may need to consider organising independently.

Please note: disclosing challenges to your learning will not affect your application and disclosures will be handled independently.
