University Support


For disabled students, it's important to make sure you've applied for the right funding, and the right people know what you need.

British Council

UK universities and colleges are inclusive places that are equally welcoming to disabled and non-disabled students. They are legally required not to discriminate against disabled students and to make all facilities on campus accessible to all.

These laws apply to international students in the same way as they do to students who are UK citizens.
