In-house support

Your higher education institution should be able to offer support in a number of different ways.

What you are offered will depend on your epilepsy as well as your university or college’s resources and policies, but below are examples of a few support options:

  • Printouts for lectures.
  • Extra time in exams.
  • Flexibility on coursework and assignment deadlines.
  • Different methods of assessment (as long as the course requirements can be satisfied by an alternative method).
  • Information about your epilepsy and any support needs is shared with lecturers and staff (with your consent).
  • Accommodation support, such a informing onsite security (with your consent); ground floor accommodation; a shower rather than a bath.
