Specialist Learning Support

Having a disability, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty shouldn’t be a barrier to higher education. So at UCW, we do all we can to support students who are affected by any of the above. We aim to foster an inclusive environment to encourage independent learning, but also provide tailored support when it is needed.

This includes supporting students through the Disabled Students’ Allowance application process, study skills sessions, mental health and wellbeing advice and specialist support, including for those on the autism spectrum.

Our Specialist Learning Support Team is led by Specialist Support Manager Sarah Parnell. If you’d like to contact Sarah, please email her at or phone 01934 411 411 ext 1343.
