To enable the College Support Team to properly assess your needs, they will ask for some supporting documents which give further detail about your condition or disability. Below are some examples of what it would be helpful for you to provide:
- Disabled Assessment report
- Doctor’s letter detailing the impact of your disability on your ability to study/live independently
- Educational Psychologist’s report.
Additionally, if your request relates to a medical condition, the following information will help us accurately assess your needs:
- Diagnosis and the date you were diagnosed
- Further information on your symptoms and how they affect your daily life and ability to study, such as fatigue or problems concentrating
- Information about the state of your condition, i.e. whether it is temporary or long term
- Potential side effects of any medication you may be taking.
Please note, these are only examples of the sort of information that could be useful in supporting your claim. You do not need to submit all of them, and you can provide us with any other documents that you think might be helpful too.
Translated supporting documents
If your documents are in a language other than English, you will need to have them translated. The translated documents must be produced by an accredited translation agency and be signed off with a signed statement of the truth.
