Disability and Neurodiversity Support for PGRs

PGR students are very welcome to register with the Disability and Neurodiversity team.  We can provide advice and support for students with a disability, including specific learning differences (such as dyslexia or dyspraxia), mental health conditions, autism, long term illnesses and physical health conditions.  

We can support you in your studies by working with you to create an individual Learning Support Agreement, a list of recommendations to your department on how best to help you manage your course and reach your full potential.

We also offer advice and guidance on Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs).  This is a government fund administered by Student Finance that can help with the cost of specialist equipment/ computer software, regular mentoring or study skills tuition, travel and other disability-related costs of studying.  Further information is available on the government website: https://www.gov.uk/disabled-students-allowances-dsas

We provide one-to-one mentoring and study skills support for students with mental health conditions, autism and/ specific learning differences.  This is usually on a weekly basis and can help you with managing your studies, coping with any anxieties you have and planning and organising your workload. 

The Disability and Neurodiversity team are based on Level 1 of the library.  We are available for drop in appointments between 12 and 2pm and 4 and 5pm every weekday in term time.  You can also email us – disability@surrey.ac.uk – or call us on 01483 689609 to book an appointment.  We look forward to meeting you!
