  • special exam arrangements

Studying at the college is not only about gaining a qualification, but about enjoying the whole experience while you are here. To discuss your needs in confidence contact the Additional Learning Support Team on 01325 503190 or email them at

Disability Services – Teesside University

The advisers in Disability Services offer advice and information on entitlements, facilities, specialist equipment, access and exam provision and can negotiate arrangements with other agencies or parts of the University or College. You may be eligible for external funding through the Disabled Students’ Allowances to meet the cost of support such as specialist equipment, dyslexia tuition, note taking or mobility support. In the first instance you should make contact with an adviser to begin the process prior to starting your course. Support can take several months to arrange so early contact is recommended.

The Assessment Centre on Teesside (ACT) is available to disabled people who have applied to study in further and higher education at any institution. They currently provide services to people who are visually impaired, hearing impaired, wheelchair users or people with mobility difficulties, medical conditions, autistic spectrum disorders, mental health service users and people with specific learning difficulties (for example dyslexia). Experienced staff within ACT are trained to address your additional support needs. This will help you to access funding you may be entitled to, such as Disabled Students’ Allowances. Contact Teesside University on 01642 342277 or email
