New Students, Supporting your study

Celebrating the success of students supported by the Disability and Dyslexia team

Dylan, Student Intern, shares the joy of graduation with some of our recent graduates…

Graduating is an amazing experience. There is no doubt that doing any degree is a hard slog. For some students and graduates, though, the victory of graduation seems extra sweet because of the extra hurdles they’ve had to get over.

Watch our new video ‘Celebrating our Graduates’

We asked some of this year’s graduates, who have accessed the services provided by the Disability and Dyslexia support team, to reflect on how it feels to graduate. Watch or listen to Georgina, Chris, Fiona, Hannah P, Hannah D, and Hakim talk about their experiences of graduating as a disabled student.
