You are strongly encouraged to declare your disability on your application form when you apply to study here at UCLan. If you have declared this the disability advisers will be in contact with you to help make reasonable adjustments.
To apply for disability support once you have started your study, you need to get in contact with the Disability Services directly. You can contact a member of the team by calling 01772 892593, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also tell any member of staff at the University, who will ask you to sign a disability disclosure form, to tell us that you have a disability and agree to share this information with the Disability Service. We will then get in touch with you to discuss your available options. From this you will be assigned a Disability Adviser whom you can contact should you need any further help or assistance.
The University understands that your disclosure will involve sensitive information. We have procedures to make sure all personal information about you and your disability is secure. Sometimes, for your benefit, the University may need to share some of your information with your consent.

Your views and opinions as a student are very important to us as a University. If you want everything about your disability to be confidential – within Disability Services for example – this can be arranged. However, this could make it difficult to assess your needs, and difficult to make the adjustments you need.
