From listening to students and staff at universities and colleges, there is a need to make sure that the support students receive, is actually what they need.
To help both students and staff, we have developed a free and simple support pack, which includes:
Designed to raise awareness of epilepsy among staff and students of higher education institutions, this is available as a PDF or can be printed and distributed as hard copies around the campus.
Fantastic resources that deserve the highest possible profile.
Nottingham Trent University
Providing valuable information about the different types of epilepsy and the various ways it can affect education, this course offers guidance to support students with epilepsy, including examples of good and bad real-life experiences.
I found the online course extremely well made and informative.
University of Surrey
There is a section that allows students to see which members of staff have received their information.
Students have told us this is a major concern for them, as they feel anxious about not knowing who has been informed of their support needs.
I have been extremely impressed by the resources and plan to find ways of sharing them with staff members and students here at the college.
From guidance on dealing with changes in lifestyle, advice on medication routines as well as allowances and benefits, students with epilepsy can find out what to expect when they start at university.
We have found the resources excellent and have used them in college. We would definitely like to be kept up to date with any further resources in the future.
