Your Summary of Reasonable Adjustments (SRA)

If you have told us you have a disability our University has a legal duty to make reasonable adjustments to enable you to successfully complete your studies and participate in University life on an equal basis with your peers.

The Equality Act 2010 defines a disabled person as:

Someone who has a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term effect on his or her ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.

This may include:

  • Mobility difficulties
  • Sensory (e.g. visual or hearing) impairments
  • Mental health conditions
  • Long term medical conditions
  • Autistic spectrum conditions e.g. Asperger Syndrome
  • Specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia.

A condition is considered to be long-term where it has lasted, or is expected to last, at least 12 months. At university we will consider the impact your disability has on your study life.

The purpose of reasonable adjustments is to remove barriers which you may experience because of your disability, to help you to meet the learning outcomes and demonstrate the necessary academic standards to successfully complete your course.

To let your tutors know about your recommended reasonable adjustments, a SRA, based on the evidence provided by you of the impact of your disability, will be agreed with you and distributed on a need to know basis to teaching staff and support services. Depending on the impact of the disability, the SRA may include individual exam arrangements, library support, provision of resources in alternative formats and, where applicable, consideration of adjustments for placements.

You will be able to access your SRA from your e:Vision account.

We would recommend that you:

  • Talk to your personal tutor about your SRA
  • Discuss the expectations of the course and any placements to reassure yourself that you have chosen well and will be able to succeed, given appropriate support
  • Advise your Study Support Adviser if your adjustments are not being made or you need to review your support needs
  • Take advantage of Study Skills Plus and Study Support sessions and use online resources to improve your general study skills
  • Contact the Exams Office or Study Support if you have not heard about your individual arrangements at least 2 weeks before your exam.

Study Support Advisers are also very willing to answer any specific queries in relation to your SRA. Please contact us if you have any questions.
