The journey through university life can be both an exciting and confusing time for many students. It can be particularly challenging for those who have an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC).
The ASC Service can support you to:
- Make the transition from home to university with a 2-Day orientation programme for new students
- Learn to navigate the University environment
- Become involved in the social side of university life
- Deal with exams and assessments

Accessing Long-Term Support
Whilst the Wellbeing Service endeavours to provide support throughout difficult times, students with long-term difficulties may require additional support. Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) is available if you have a disability, long-term health condition, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty.
DSA can ensure consistent support throughout your studies. Following an assessment, note takers, support workers and one-to-one study skills sessions may be available if it has been agreed that you need them.
