Starting further or higher education is a really exciting time, full of new experiences. It’s important you get as much out of it as possible, both in terms of your course and the social side of things.
Take a look at our information on support in higher education, as well as tips on the changes in lifestyle and how to manage your epilepsy if you live away from home for the first time.
Higher education institutions are required by law to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that a student with epilepsy is not treated unfavourably because of their condition.
Our Epilepsy Friendly mark recognises those institutions who are doing more to improve their understanding of epilepsy and provide better support to their students
As a higher or further institution, you can download our free information pack which contains guides to epilepsy, epilepsy questionnaires for students and online training courses for staff.
You can also become part of our Epilepsy Friendly scheme which recognises those institutions who have gone over and above to improve their understanding of epilepsy.
