Student life at the University of Brighton

Disability and dyslexia

We believe that every student should have an equal opportunity to learn and use their abilities.

The university currently has over 2,300 students with disabilities, approximately 12% of the student population, so it is not unusual to be a disabled student here.

The disability and dyslexia team coordinate support for students who declare a disability or a specific learning difficulty.

As a disabled student you may face obstacles to learning. We are here to advise and support you as an applicant and student to ensure you get full access to what the university has to offer, and any extra assistance needed to put you on a level playing field with other students.

There is support available in the following areas:

Further information about the process of setting up and accessing your learning support can be found in our 5 Steps to Accessing Disability Support leaflet (pdf).

This service has achieved the Matrix Quality Standard for information, advice and guidance
