Deaf Students

If you are a deaf student, currently we do not have a counsellor who can use sign language (BSL) however, we can arrange for either an interpreter or a counsellor who can work with you using BSL.

An Induction Loop System has been installed within our service.

Whatever your difficulty you are welcome and you will be treated with respect.

Many thanks to the University of Dundee for allowing us access to their website.
