Student Support and Wellbeing

The University’s Student Support & Wellbeing Team are here to provide advice and support to help you make the most of your time at 
University:

STUDENTS WITH A DISABILITY OR SPECIFIC LEARNING DIFFICULTY 

Our helpful Disability Advisors are a great source of support and useful advice. We can talk to you about the many support options available to you whilst studying at the University. 
 
Support for all students at the University includes:
 
• General study skills support, including opportunities to attend study tutorials and general workshops, through the University Learning Centres.
• Apps Anywhere – access to specialist software.
• Audio-visual lecture capture – a number of taught sessions are captured.
• Contacting your Personal Tutor for academic guidance.
• Help and support from your course team.
 
Depending on your individual needs, you may be eligible for additional support provided by the University. The Student Support & Wellbeing Team  can talk to you about additional support that may  be available including considerate marking, exam arrangements and strategies to support your learning.
 
Look out for information about our Student Social Groups and Drop-In Cafes to meet and chat with  other students.

DISABLED STUDENTS’ ALLOWANCES

You may be eligible to receive additional funding known as the Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA) to help cover the costs of additional support you may need to access your university studies. DSA funding is available for eligible students and can help with costs for specialist equipment, non-medical helpers and other disability-related costs associated with studying.
 
The University of Wolverhampton is an approved non-medical helper provider. Come and talk to us to see if DSA funding could support you to access specialist one-to-one study support, BSL support or specialist note-taking, or specialist mentoring.
