The University of Aberdeen welcomes disabled students and is committed to improving access to its courses, facilities, buildings and social life.

The role of the Disability Advisers is to work with all areas of the University Community to ensure that students have an equal opportunity to enjoy the full benefit of their University experience. Our work encompasses disability in the broadest sense and includes making arrangements for students who require support as a result of injury, illness or a long term medical condition.

A Disability Adviser is happy to meet with people at any time prior to application, during the application process or at any stage during studies. The first step is usually to make contact with a Disability Adviser either in person or by email or telephone.

Disclosing a disability or medical condition at the University of Aberdeen simply allows us to provide you with relevant and appropriate support for the successful completion of your studies. If you have particular concerns related to disclosure, you are welcome to discuss these ‘off the record’ with a Disability Adviser.

Before adjustments are put in place, we ask that you provide a doctor’s letter to confirm your medical condition. We can help to arrange this. The original copy of any medical evidence is kept in a confidential file by the Disability Advisers. During our discussion, we will agree the adjustments that can be made and a provisions form will be prepared. These can be updated at any time if your circumstances change. We do not inform Schools or Departments about your requirements without your explicit knowledge and consent.
