Support services may include academic accommodations, special examination arrangements, accessible campus facilities, counselling and career services, and bursaries and scholarships.

 

Access to Support Services:

Disclose your SEN to the Registry during your admission, or contact the Student Affairs Office (SAO) when in need.
Attend an interview with SAO to let us know your specific needs. (Please bring along documentation from recognized professionals on your SEN).
SAO will discuss with the department/offices and you on the appropriate support arrangements.
